Beautiful clothes, luxurious parties, and charming smiles are all hiding the outrageous scandals, forbidden romance, jealous rivalries, and risky bargains of five teenagers living in Manhattan. With so many obstacles stopping each of them from getting what they want, will love conquer all in the end?
The Luxe is a young adult historical fiction novel. It contains:
• References to sex (no details)
• One use of godd*mn
• Young people drinking and smoking (which is not out of context for the historical era)
This is the first in a series of four books. It’s slow to start, but the pace picks up a lot after about one hundred pages. Fans of Sara Shepard’s writing should find it quite enjoyable.
Readers who enjoyed The Luxe might also like the Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray, and the Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard.
