ENVY by Elizabeth Miles

Spring is here, and the ice is slowly melting in Ascension…revealing the secrets buried beneath.

The Furies are back, and Emily Winters is about to discover that their roots in Ascension are deeper than she ever imagined. With the help of her new friend Drea, she vows to take them down. But it's hard to focus when she's desperate to make up with JD, and to figure out why Crow, a mysterious Ascension High dropout, seems to be shadowing her.

Meanwhile, new girl Skylar McVoy is determined to leave her own dark past behind. So she's thrilled when not only does popular Gabby takes her under her wing, but the stunning and sophisticated Meg offers to give her a major makeover. But everyone knows what happens to the vainest girl of all…

It's tempting to be naughty. But beware: the Furies are always watching, and their power grows stronger by the day.

I borrowed this book from the library and as soon as I started reading, I was hooked. I got sucked into this one as quickly as I did with the first one.

Em's still being haunted by the three beautiful but super freaky girls she now knows are the Furies. Her neighbour--who also happens to be the guy she's in love with--isn't talking to her. She's becoming distant from her friends and can't concentrate on schoolwork. All she wants to do is spend time trying to figure out a way to stop the Furies from driving her insane. And she's changing.

Skylar is new in town and has a pretty big secret of her own, but she's determined to put it all behind her and become the most popular girl in school. But the way she sets about doing it really took me by surprise. Talk about a mean girl hiding behind an innocent and tortured face. Yikes! Poor Gabby becomes the target for her wrath and as Skylar starts spinning out of control, the Furies seem to gain momentum.

I also liked the addition of the mysterious Crow. Can't wait to see how things turn out there.

Wow. This was another excellent installment! Looking forward to reading the conclusion.
