Book Description


Markham Savoy is Colebrook Academy's most infamous student...
He's also the most attractive, most deviant, and most charming, but who's counting? Every Colebrook matriculant knows that Markham is in the business of making problems disappear. And Colebrook students have no shortage of problems. But his aid comes at a price—an obligation to one day repay the favor. Given the number of kids who get in trouble at Colebrook, Markham has a veritable army of willing minions to do his bidding. So the question is, after years of collecting and collating the secrets of his peers, what exactly does Markham have in mind?

Each installment of Colebrook Academy is told from the point of view of a different student. As these characters' lives intertwine, each reveals one of the shocking, interlocking secrets that will help Markham leave behind a legacy. A final coup de grĂ¢ce that the halls of Colebrook Academy will never forget.

Even though he safeguards the secrets of his classmates, Markham wouldn't be caught dead sharing his own, and he never lets romantic entanglements get the best of him. But when Piper Harrington marches into his life, he’s forced to give her something in exchange for her cooperation in his schemes--his very own Colebrook Confession. And that's not the only time Piper brings out an unexpected side of himself.

Will the dirty secrets of Markham Savoy be his crowning glory...or his undoing?

My review

The dirty secrets of Markham Savoy is a quick,  easy entertaining  read. As the number of pages are very less, anyone can finish reading it in less than an hour. What we can expect from this book?

The story plot is not revealed much to the readers except we come to know more about Markham and what other people think of him. It is picture clear from the novel title, the book is centered on Markham and his dirty secrets, in addition, this series is told in his point of view though I am not a fan of his character.

Markham's character is somewhere between good and bad. And every girl in the school falls for his charm and handsomeness but not Piper Harrington. She is a good girl with great attitude. He secretly loves and admires piper to be his girlfriend. That is why (I guess) he wants her sister, Hadley to become her roommate(to learn some good values!!!).

I think you know the rest. Piper doesn't welcome this. So he gives her a leverage.A deadly secret which could result in his death if told. It has to do something with his friend Dane. Will she tell? Definitely, the answer is no. She is not the one who will bite a weakling behind it's back. 

Overall, this is a very fast paced novel. Since this is book 1 of the Colebrook Academy series, neither the secrets nor the story is unfolded. However, we can learn more about the characters that we are going to find in each one of the next series.

Verdict If you like Pretty little liars, give this book a chance. There is another big surprise. The whole series is not written by a single author which makes the next series even more unpredictable and unique from other novel series.
