In Clement-Moore's last book Maggie Quinn barely survived her senior prom from hell. Now she's a college freshman going through the motions of joining a sorority. You have to wonder why, since Maggie is not a sorority person. She's really doing an exposť about sorority recruitment, her first journalistic achievement as a college student. The college paper agrees to use her columns, printing them under Anonymous.

When she finds a sorority that welcomes her psychic abilities she's tempted to join. Pledging would allow Maggie to continue her column, writing as a pledge joining the sorority from hell. She'll soon discover how right she is. The college newspaper requests her talents as a photojournalism where she'll be credited for her photos. This is an unexpected gig for a freshman. The problem is, Maggie isn't sure whether her talent or her new sorority won her the job.

As the new pledges' initiation gets closer, danger seems to touch everyone involved with members of Sigma Xi. Knowing she's in over head, Maggie calls for help from her best friend who's attending Georgetown University and her almost boyfriend, Justine.

Maggie's sarcastic wit brings humor to even the most tense moment. She's someone readers will want to hang with often. Fortunately, the third Maggie Quinn book is due out March, 2009.
