Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

When Catherine Morrow is admitted to the Esther Percy School for Girls, it’s on the condition that she reform her ways. But that’s before the charismatic and beautiful Skye Butterfield chooses Catherine for her best friend, in this chilling portrait of an adolescent seduced into ruin by an unrelenting peer.

My take:

Well, I’m still not entirely sure what to think about this book. It was really well written, but the story was pretty dark. Definitely not a light summer read. It perpetuates stereotypes about privileged rich teenage girls, and I found the whole horse showman part of the story odd. It just didn’t fit. I would have preferred the story to include more about the characters’ relationship with each other.
