The Sixes
Kate White

Academia seems to be a subtext of my recent reading. Kate White's latest thriller is set at a small upstate Pennsylvania college. Like a creepy version of Mean Girls, her character Phoebe Hall, a celeb. biographer who has to get out of New York in a hurry, finds a super secret mean girl clique at work at the college run by her childhood friend where she goes to teach a few classes. And by the way Phoebe had her own secret mean girl organization experience. Anyway the story is seriously suspenseful and paranoid. Thoroughly enjoyable. Fans of her Bailey Weggins beauty themed crime novels will enjoy it. Don't know if Phoebe will re-appear in another novel or if this is a stand-alone. Either way, fun stuff.
