The Secret Rites of Social Butterflies

Genre: romance, drama

After Maggie Wishnick’s parents separate at the beginning of her senior year, she moves with her mother to Manhattan, where she enrolls in a posh, all-girl private school. Maggie quickly falls in with three wealthy, popular senior girls, who secretly call themselves the Revelers. Their mission is to collect dirt on every member of their class, which they record on the Wall (a vertical version of a slam book) in a hidden room of head Reveler Victoria’s apartment. Soon, Maggie begins to feel guilty about dishing on her classmates and balks when Victoria demands Maggie part with some information that could seriously hurt another friend. In the end, Maggie learns a valuable lesson about honesty and respect.
