The Luxe is told from alternating perspectives of these five teenagers. This book is a juicy read. If you want to be entertained, The Luxe is an ideal choice. Anna Godbersen is currently writing a sequel 'Rumors' which I am certainly looking forward to reading.
I rate this book with 5 juicy Muffins:
