3.5 stars

Summary: Thousands applied. One hundred got in. Only one will win.

Eccentric billionaire Shira Brazille founded the super-exclusive Alpha Academy on exotic Alpha Island to nurture the next generation of exceptional dancers,writers,musicians,and inventors. It`s a dream come true for one hundred lucky girls,but those not measuring up will be sent home at any time,for any reason. The one left standing will win worldwide fame? Who will it be?

Skye Hamilton

Known for dance moves and ability to make super fast connections with boys,Skye plans on taking the alphas by storm-and lip-kissing all of Shira`s superhot sons.

Allie A. Abbot

Is one little initial away from superstardom. So when Allie J.Abbot`s invitation to Alpha Academy arrives on her doorstep,she does what any crafty girl would:commit identity theft. Can she keep up the charade?

Charlie Deery

Beta-for-life Charlie is offered a last minute place at the Academy,but there`s an admission condition:dumping her boyfriend-Shira`s son. It`s hard to claw her way up when ninety-nine girls are waiting to sink their claws into her superhawt ex.

Review: The book was a little bit hard to believe. I mean an island for the academy and holograms? Seriously?

The characters were believable. Out of the three main characters I liked Charlie the most because she is the only one who is not snobby or rich in the book. Skye was ok but Allie J got very annoying at times. Most of the characters were annoying like Triple and Renee.

I was overall very surprised with this book. Spin offs usually aren`t very successful. But it almost lived up to The Clique. The clique is still my fav.

Overall: Very surprising but hard to believe.
