Georgetown Academy Book Three by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz

Some pretty intense things have been happening with a few members of Georgetown Academy’s student body, and I was eager to catch up with them and see how they were dealing with their drama. In Georgetown Academy Book Three, secrets are revealed, new dangers are met, and romantic feelings are expressed. There is truly never a dull moment in the world of Georgetown Academy. (If this is the first time you’re heading about this book and series, check out my reviews of books one and two to get yourself caught up.)

In Georgetown Academy Book Three, Brinley Madison (yes, she’s a descendant of a certain famous president with the same last name) is recovering from her Adderall addiction. Though it may be too soon for her to reintegrate herself into Georgetown Academy life, she attends the school ski trip and is grateful to be away from D.C. for awhile. Taryn and Gabe are still going strong, but he has yet to “define the relationship”. Evan and Hunter are avoiding one another, but she may get her chance with him when she and Luke stage their breakup. Ellie is hanging out with Weston, the son of her mother’s friend, who just may be more than she can handle.

I loved the change of scenery in Georgetown Academy Book Three. This ski trip takes all of the main girls out of their stressful environments and lets them have a little fun–and for one of them, maybe just a bit more fun than she might want. Of the four girls, I was most intrigued by Ellie’s and Weston’s storyline. It felt familiar, and that’s probably because it’s similar to something that happened in one of my favorite WB shows from way back when. What happens to Ellie and another classmate is a serious matter, and I’m glad that the authors brought it up. It’s a great cautionary tale for young girls, and unfortunately that type of thing does happen in the real world. Hopefully girls who participate in underage drinking might learn a thing or two from what Ellie goes through.

Being such a short book, the fun ended all too soon. The more installments in this series I read, the more attached I become to all of the characters, even Brinley. I’m happy that some of the relationship drama is getting worked out and that they each may find the person they are meant to be with. Some of the background characters, like Luke, still have some hardships ahead to face. I’m also looking forward to seeing what happens with Taryn and Brooks–who are absolutely perfect for each other. Something big is going on with Taryn’s family as well, and I’m dying to know what it is.
