    I have a bit of a thing for stories set in schools that hold a hint of mystery and a past present vibe so when I read the blurb for The Exclusives the terrific cover having caught my eye I thought AHA Looks like one for me.And it was I loved this for many reasons, not least of which is the brilliant characterisation, with the girls being portrayed evoking many emotional responses, from deep sympathy to intense dislike Sign of a good read, that.Freya is trying to contact Jo way back wh I have a bit of a thing for stories set in schools that hold a ...

    Two timescales, 1996 and up to date Beginning at an expensive boarding school with best friends Freya and Josephine, until something happens one evening Freya wanted to discuss it but Josephine didn t end of friendship The trouble is that sometimes the longer you have to wait for the reveal, the less of an impact it is, which is what happens with this story It was all a bit tiresome and I thought that some of the events at school were implausible Neither of the girls were particularly lik Two timescales, 1996 and up to date Beginning at an expensive boarding school with best friends Freya a...
