Tess gives a five-star award to Little Secrets: Playing with Fire

“Hmm,” I thought as I was looking through my bookcase, “what would be a good book to review this time?” Then I thought, “hey why not some Little Secrets!”  This series of books is more of a girl series than a guy series because there’s scandals, backstabbers, and so much DRAMA, which is something that guys want to stay away from, and rightly so!

“Little Secrets Playing with Fire” is the first in the Little Secrets series by Emily Blake. I have read this book and the second and loved them both! I have recently bought the last books of the series and will be reading and reviewing them soon.

Wow! It seemed like Alison Rose had everything she’d ever want; at least, until her mother was arrested and her best friend stabbed her in the back. As Alison’s world comes crashing down on her, she starts to wonder who it is she can trust. Nasty backstabbing Kelly is the most popular girl in school and has managed to steal Chad, Alison’s boyfriend away from her. As her mother sits in jail, Alison grows closer and closer to her grandmother, who seems like the most likely person who would have put Alison’s mother in jail. As Kelly becomes more and more powerful at school Alison becomes more and more of a social suicide case if anyone were to be caught talking with her. As the book progresses, Alison finds out about some major family secrets. She and Grandmother Diamond grow closer together and even though Kelly is Queen Bee at school, Alison is number one with their grandmother and that burns Kelly up inside. The end of the book nears with an ending that leaves you gasping.

In this book there are two other major characters, Zoey and Tom, but telling too much about their background and how they are now would give too much of the book away.

I would rate this five stars because of the way the story line goes.  All the scandals and drama that this family has is just fun to read about. It shows Alison who you can and can’t trust. I think that this book is amazing. I have read it many times and will read it many more times.
