The Alpha bet
Some teenagers use drugs or sex to escape overbearing parents. I used books. All my life my mother has been hovering over me, afraid to let me experience ANYTHING. So I got really good grades, graduated from high school when I was sixteen, and escaped to a new life-my own life-at college.
To jump-start my social life, I decided to rush the Alphas, the most exclusive sorority on campus. Things started to get complicated when I told one little white lie. (Okay, maybe not so little.) Then one of the sisters invoked the Alpha Bet, a super-secret set of alphabetical tasks we pledges have to complete to prove our loyalty. Now, the Alpha Bet has taken over my life.
Can you spell B-E-T-R-A-Y-A-L?
"Reminiscent of Meg Cabot and Kieran Scott, Hale sets a perfect tone-overtly bubbly with glimpses of Grace Kelly's obvious intelligence-for her gawky, brainy wallflower with a delightful personality."-Booklist
