Rumors by Anna Godbersen
This is the second novel in "The Luxe" series, a series of YA novels set in decadent 1899 New York City. After the untimely demise of debutante Elizabeth Holland, this novel follows the lives of her younger sister Diana and best friend Penelope - and the fiance Elizabeth never had a chance to marry.
This is another interesting historical novel written for young adults - something not readily found in most YA collections. The writing is dishy and fresh, and doesn't read at all like a stuffy historical romance.
This is a great series - I'm ready to read more of the upper crust in Envy, the next book due out!
