If you dont belong here you just dont belong&

The Bramford buildings newest resident and small-town transplant Casey McCloy is adapting to life in the Big Apple and loving it. Shes got the look, the attitude, and a delish new boyfriend, Drew Van Allen. But shes starting to have second thoughts as to whether the New York Casey is the real Casey. And shes not so sure she likes herself much anymore. Shes not the only one.

Madison Macallister has always had her Manolo Blahniks firmly planted on the top rung of the social ladderuntil that corn-fed cow Casey stole Drew away from her and made her look the fool. So what if Madison wasnt exactly dating Drew at the time? She wanted him. And everyone knows that Madison gets what she wants, like Drewand a little revenge.


Everyone's favorite characters from The Elite are back with more drama, fun, and lessons of the Upper East Side. Jennifer Banash picks up where The Elite left off and continues writing the fabulous story of Madison and her clan, Casey, and Drew. In Too Deep is once again written in alternating chapters between the characters, and I can never get enough of all the characters. I'm hoping to hear more from Phoebe and Jared in Book 3! In Too Deep reveals so much more of all the characters stories and lives. It's jam packed with drama, drama, and more drama. The end leaves readers begging for book 3!

She's got the look, the attitude, and a delish new boyfriend, Drew Van Allen. But she's starting to have second thoughts as to whether the "New York" Casey is the real Casey. And she's not so sure she likes herself much anymore. She's not the only one.Madison Macallister has always had her Manolo Blahniks firmly planted on the top rung of the social ladder-until that corn-fed cow Casey stole Drew away from her and made her look the fool.

I th0ught this book was better than the first after reading this it makes me want to read Simply Irresistable. This book sounded more realistic like planning a sweet 16 and how Casey handled a new boyfriend and having problems with a new bf. Again I got lost and mixed up characters because of switching of narraters. I love the covers of all the books in this series the girls just look really cool and the makeup is great.

Casey McCloy is finally getting used to living in New York. Moving from a small town in the middle of nowhere to the big city was a big change. But with her adorable boyfriend, Drew Van Allen, and a little knowledge of how things work, she's starting to fit in with all the other girls. Unfortunately, that means that being herself isn't really a choice anymore. Is fitting in really more important than being the real her?

But that's not her only worry. Madison Macallister is still angry with Casey for stealing Drew from her. Madison always gets what she wants. And this time Madison wants Drew...and a little revenge.

In Too Deep is the second book in The Elite series by Jennifer Banash. These books have all the expensive brands of Gossip Girl with a plot! What's not to like? I don't normally go for the rich girls being mean to the poor girl type of book, but this has interesting characters, each with their own little sub plot going on, and excellent writing. I think I preferred the first book to the second, but in this book, Madison seemed a lot more relateable than she did in the first.

I'd recommend this to Gossip Girl readers who are looking for something new to read. They are easy to enjoy and are great if you're looking for a light book. You can get In Too Deep January 6th, 2009. The next book in the series, Simply Irresistible, will be available Summer 2009.

Welcome back to the ultra-exclusive world of The Elite. The lives of the inhabitants of New Yorks Upper East Side are purposely polished to have an impeccably shiny veneer, but behind the stylish clothes and designed appearances is a different story. Casey McCloy is finally getting her act together with a new and improved New York look and attitude, and the arm candy to go with it. But looking good doesnt necessarily mean feeling good, and Casey is feeling insecure about her reluctant acceptance into the Bram Clanand not without good reason. Madison Macallister is by no means a charitable girl, especially because she believes Casey stole Drew from her. Not the only way shes tolerate Caseys presence is to exact her revenge. Its bound to be a devilish showdown between the outsider and the queen of the Upper East Sides teen scene; who will be victorious?

I think I must emphasize how great it is that The Elite series is the Gossip Girl series once its grown a conscience. Readers will be drawn into the extravagant and high-end lifestyles of New Yorks upper class as well as sympathize with these spoiled teens issues. The characters are well-developed, and Im sure most readers will be able to see a little bit of themselves in each character. In some ways, the teens may seem a little stereotypical and clichéd, but it actually works in this story; its part of what makes it so easy to understand the characters. My only issues with In Too Deep were that it was a bit all over the place with all the subplots and alternating points-of-view and the minor characters werent developed. In Too Deep was just a tad less organized than its prequel, and there were times when I was slightly confused (though in the edited version, I'm sure all will be cleared up). However, overall, I immensely enjoyed the new developments in this intriguing series.

Readers who enjoyed The Elite will definitely want to check out its sequel, and I know I cant wait for the third book, Simply Irresistible. Fans of the Gossip Girl, A-List, and Upper Class series will also want to read The Elite series. Even if youre not interested in those series but love high fashion, scandal, and realistic characters, youll love this fantastic series.
