Review by Booklist Reviews

Mechanic-turned-debutante Sawyer Taft may have done what she set out to do in Little White Lies (2018) and uncovered the identity of her father, but she's also made things all the more complicated for herself. Her biological dad is also her uncle J.D., and if Sawyer reveals the truth, she'll risk losing Lily, the cousin who's become a best friend. But it's summertime now, and everyone is relaxing at the lake—until Sawyer and Lily receive ominous invitations from the White Gloves, an elite, all-female secret society. They'll have to fight to earn their place, and though Lily seems invested, Sawyer isn't sure about the White Gloves. But when the girls unearth a years-old body one night—one that, startlingly, may be connected to Sawyer's murky past—things start to get seriously interesting. . . and seriously dangerous. This sequel goes dark, excavating the divisions between classes, the cracks that fracture families, and the ties that bind them. Readers who joined Sawyer for her first outing will be eager to see where her story goes. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

No one is quite who they seem to be in the twisty, soapy, gasp-inducing world of the Debutantes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, #1 bestselling author of The Inheritance Games.   Think of the White Gloves like the Junior League -- by way of Skull and Bones. Reluctant debutante Sawyer Taft joined Southern high society for one reason and one reason alone: to identify and locate her biological father. But the answers Sawyer found during her debutante year only left her with more questions and one potentially life-ruining secret. When her cousin Lily ropes her into pledging a mysterious, elite, and all-female secret society called the White Gloves, Sawyer soon discovers that someone in the group's ranks may have the answers she's looking for. Things are looking up . . . until Sawyer and the White Gloves make a disturbing discovery near the family's summer home -- and uncover a twisted secret, decades in the making.
