Nicole: I read the first book in the Elite series by Rachel Van Dyke yesterday. It had been sitting on my Kindle FOREVER (gotta start making room for some of your great recommendations)…so I read it yesterday, it started out slow, and a little confusing and then toward the end I was sucked in hook,line, and sinker. It does have a mafia angle which I didn’t see at first, it seemed more like new girl gets picked on by the popular kids, but then the story really unfolds. Very excited to read book 2!
Missy: Been waiting for Elect forever, already preordered!
Evieve: I have a feeling that Rachel Van Dyken’s Elite and Elect would be books you’d really like. Mafia, Young Adult novels that really suck you in. Definitely check them out when you get a chance!
About book #1:
For Tracey Rooks, life with her grandparents on a Wyoming farm has always been simple. But after her grandmother’s death, Tracey is all her grandfather has. So when Eagle Elite University announces its annual scholarship lottery, Tracey jumps at the opportunity to secure their future and enters. She isn’t expecting much-but then she wins. And life as she knows it will never be same . . .
The students at Eagle Elite are unlike any she’s ever met . . . and they refuse to make things easy for her. There’s Nixon, gorgeous, irresistible, and leader of a group that everyone fears: The Elect. Their rules are simple. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. No matter how hard she tries to stay away, The Elect are always around her and it isn’t long until she finds out the reason why they keep their friends close and their enemies even closer. She just didn’t realize she was the enemy — until it was too late.
