Summary: (Taken from Amazon)
If you don’t belong here— you just don’t belong…

The Bramford building’s newest resident and small-town transplant Casey McCloy is adapting to life in the Big Apple and loving it. 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. So what if Madison wasn’t exactly dating Drew at the time? She wanted him. And everyone knows that Madison gets what she wants, like Drew—and a little revenge.

My Thoughts:If you’re been following my blog for long, you know that I absolutely adored Jennifer Banash’s first book, The Elite. In Too Deep is, if anything, better than it’s prequel.

In Too Deep takes us farther into the drama of the five main character’s, Casey, Sophie, Phoebe, Madison, and Drew’s, drama-filled life. Farm girl Casey is climbing up the teen social ladder, first by becoming a sort-of girlfriend to Drew, Madison’s ex, and then by becoming close with Madison’s other friends. Madison’s fed up and ready to take Casey down, once and for all.

But, In Too Deep is in no way just about Casey and Madison’s little drama. In Too Deep introduces us to a new meaning of “family drama”. Without giving too much away, there’s a ton of secrets, cheating, and parents secretly dating friends’ parents.

With all that drama, you’re probably going to feel like you’re watching some MTV drama, and that seems to be exactly what Banash is going for.

I definitely think In Too Deep is a step up from The Elite, even with all of the brand names I’ve never heard of. (Kidding. Slightly.) If you’ve read and enjoyed The Elite, I definitely recommend picking up In Too Deep, though you’ll have to wait until January. If you haven’t read The Elite, now is the perfect time to pick it up so you’ll be ready for In Too Deep when it comes out.
