When her free-spirited mother dies in a tragic accident, 16-year old Alexandra Lee is forced to leave her West Coast home and move in with a wealthy grandmother she’s never known in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful if unwilling member of the Magnolia League - Savannah’s long-standing debutante society. But white gloves and silk gowns are a far cry from the vintage T-shirts and torn jeans shorts she’s used to.
Alex is the first in decades to question the Magnolia League’s intentions, yet even she becomes entangled in its seductive world. The members enjoy youth, beauty, and power... but at what cost? As Alex discovers a pact between the Magnolias and the Buzzards, a legendary hoodoo family, she unearths secrets - some deadly - hidden beneath the glossy Southern veneer.
New York Times best-selling author Katie Crouch’s poignant and humorous voice shines in this enchanting and mysterious story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.

This book had potential but the story, the characters and even the southern background was so cliche. Julia Whelan saved this book for me. If it wasn't for her narration, I don't think I could have finished this book. I wish that Alex would have been a stronger female character. The character she was built up to be crumbled half way through the book. I think that had her character been fierce, strong and unwavering in her decisions and convictions then i would have rooted for her. But as it stood, she was a whiny, wishy-washy character.
Nope. A good story is a good story and I love when I stumble upon one.
It was a little light
It ended a little abruptly - seems there could have been a couple more chapters explaining the impact of her decision.
The narrator changed her voice to fit the character.
