Fans of Beautiful Disaster will devour Diana Peterfreund's Ivy League novels--Secret Society Girl, Under the Rose, Rites of Spring (Break), and Tap & Gown. At an elite university, Amy Haskel has been initiated into the country's most notorious secret society. But in this power-hungry world where new blood is at the mercy of old money, hooking up with the wrong people could be fatal.

Now a senior at Eli University, Amy is looking her future squarely in the eye--until someone starts selling society secrets. When a female member mysteriously disappears and a series of bizarre messages suggests conspiracy within the ranks, no member of Rose & Grave is safe . . . or above suspicion.

On Amy's side, the other women in Rose & Grave remain loyal. Against her? A group of Rose & Grave's berpowerful patriarchs who want their old boys' club back. As new developments in her love life threaten to explode, and the search for the missing girl takes a disturbing turn, Amy will need to use every society maneuver she's ever learned in order to stay one step ahead. Even if it means turning to old adversaries for help--or looking for her real enemies closer than she'd thought.
