Summary

Summary

Reed Brennan's future is looking as bright as the two-karat diamonds in her new housemates' ears. Being accepted to the most prestigious private boarding school in the country wasn't enough for Reed. She had to break every rule to do it, but she has accomplished the impossible:

Reed is a Billings Girl now.

And with her new status come respect, envy, and, most important, opportunity. Not to mention the parties. Unfortunately, at the next illicit party in the Easton campus woods, her roommate snaps some pictures of Reed in more than one compromising position. She uses the photos to blackmail Reed: Dig up dirt on the most powerful and popular Billings Girls or she will have Reed expelled.

And speaking of parties, the Legacy is coming up. It's the invitation-only Halloween party in New York City, and it's rumored that Thomas--Reed's MIA boyfriend--will be making an appearance there. Too bad Reed isn't even close to invited.

Life as a Billings Girl is every bit as glamorous as Reed imagined. What she didn't bargain for is the tangled web of private lies these girls weave.

Library Journal Review

Writing in the third person, Smith, a.k.a. "Yellowstone Vic," relates his adventures as an Indian fighter, hide hunter, guide, trick shot, and trapper across the American frontier during the 1870s to 1890s. A reticent man, Smith often discusses other people rather than himself in his writing. Familiar names such as Col. Nelson A. Miles, General Alfred Terry, George Armstrong Custer, Buffalo Bill Cody, and Theodore Roosevelt, as well as the not-so-famous, fill the pages of this narrative, which was discovered in 1990 at Harvard's Houghton Library by editor and researcher Prodgers (The Only Good Bear Is a Dead Bear: A Collection of the West's Best Bear Stories, Falcon, 1986). Smith's humor, clichés, prejudices, and fondness for storytelling are not missing from this edition, with endnotes enhancing and complementing the text.
