PLATINUM picks up weeks after GOLDEN left off.

Lilah's not sure exactly what's happening to her. She's seeing people that no one else can see, but she's not sure if it's the past or the future. All she knows is that someone wants to kill her boyfriend and she's got to figure out why. In looking at old yearbooks, she discovers that Brock's not the first boy who could end up dying.

Not only does she have to deal with her new visions, but also her social life, which could be falling apart. Her best friend makes a play for her boyfriend. Even though she's now having lukewarm feelings for him, it's against the girl code. She's taking down her best friend if that's the last thing she does. Lilah hasn't gotten to the top without hiccups, but she's determined to have Lissy help her with the visions and remain the Queen Bee.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes takes a normal high school drama of best friends vs. boys and adds a paranormal twist. Give this one to fans of vampire books looking for something similar. ( )

In the sequel to Golden, we hear the story of Lilah Covington, the Platinum queen of the Goldens. She doesn’t like Lissy, but can’t seem to help, well, helping her. But Lilah is in for a big surprise. Her life is turned upside down when she finds out Lissy isn’t the only freak in town. Because Lilah can see into the past and it is about to bring her perfect life crashing down around her.

This is a sequel to Golden in which one of the bitchy "goldens" tells of the development of her own esp powers. I didn't like it as much as the first.

I found that the book was a page turner and kept me interested in the story line. I liked that it gave clues to the mystery along the plot line and that you had to wait until the end of the book to discover what the book was truly about and what is really happening.

The book started with what seemed like an artificial story line (typical teen reading), but what later revealed to have a more substantial content. The book talks about a girl that is the "hottest of the hot". Although she has a power which is retrovision -visions from the past. The book has almost a mystery to it which you, as the reader, and Leila (the girl) have to solve. This book is full of suspense. I really enjoyed this book.

LILAH KNOWS THE rules better than anyone, but between her newfound visions, an absolutely fatal attraction to a boy who isn't real, and the threat of a supernatural enemy with a sting deadlier than any Queen Bee, it's going to take everything she has to stay on top at Emory. And to prove once and for all that - highlights and high heels aside - those who make the rules are the only ones who can break them.
