"Thousands apllied. One hundred got in. Only one will winn.
Eccentric billionaire Shira Brazille founded the super exclusive Alpha Academy on exotic Alpha Island to nuture the next generation of exceptional dancers, writers, musicians, and inventors. It's a dream come true for one hundred lucky girls, but those not measuring up will be sent home at any time, for any reason. The one left standing will win worldwide fame.
Known for her dance moves and ability to make superfast connections with boys, Skye plans on taking the alphas by storm - and lip-kissing all five of Shira's superhot sons.
Allie A. Abbot
Is one little inital away from superstardom. So when Allie J. Abbott's invitation to Alpha Academy arrives on her doorstep, she does what any crafty girl would: commits identity theft. Can she keep up the charade?
Beta-for-life Charlie is offered a last-minute place at the Academy, but there's an admission condition: dumping her boyfriend - Shira's son. It's hard to claw her way up when ninety-nine girls are waiting to sink their clawas into her superhawt ex....
If at first you don't succeed, you're not an alpha.
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I have seen the Clique series around for years... but have never picked any of them up (I could never make myself hunt for the first one, so I just never got around to it). And I was a little worried that the story would be so sugary that I wouldn't be able to make it through.
But I was so very wrong. The writing is clever and I pretty much laughed my way through all of the descriptions. I have never read a book and thought, "These descriptions are awesome"... but in this book they are. For instance: "Tears burned Charlie's eyes like expired mascara." or: "The air was thick and sticky, and each breath felt like she was snorting a milk shake." Just awesome! The whole book is like that... and I loved it!
If nothing else, this book is a fantastic chick lit book - and I look forward to the next in this series. I also have to say that if you've been looking at the Clique books wondering if you should try them.... try this one.
