New York Times bestselling author of MEN AND DOGS and GIRLS IN TRUCKS has written a young adult novel about a debutante society where white gloves and silk gowns are the norm and anything else is just unheard of. After her mother dies in a tragic accident, sixteen-year-old Alexandria Lee is sent to live with a wealthy grandmother she's never known in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, she is entitled to be a member of the Magnolia League, Savannah’s debutante society, but Alex struggles to fit in. She is the first person in decades to question the League’s intentions and when she does, she discovers some deadly secrets hidden beneath the glossy Southern facade. (jasbro)… (més)
