Waiting on Wednesday: The Flappers: Vixen by Jillian Larkin

The Flappers: Vixen by Jillian Larkin (Published by Delacorte Books, December 14, 2010)

Every girl wants what she can’t have. Seventeen-year-old Gloria Carmody wants the flapper lifestyle—and the bobbed hair, cigarettes, and music-filled nights that go with it. Now that she’s engaged to Sebastian Grey, scion of one of Chicago’s most powerful families, Gloria’s party days are over before they’ve even begun . . . or are they?
Clara Knowles, Gloria’s goody-two-shoes cousin, has arrived to make sure the high-society wedding comes off without a hitch—but Clara isn’t as lily-white as she appears. Seems she has some dirty little secrets of her own that she’ll do anything to keep hidden...
Lorraine Dyer, Gloria’s social-climbing best friend, is tired of living in Gloria’s shadow. When Lorraine’s envy spills over into desperate spite, no one is safe. And someone’s going to be very sorry...
From debut author Jillian Larkin, VIXEN is the first novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic new series set in the Roaring Twenties.... when anything goes.


This series sounds pretty similar to Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen, I guess the 1920s is a popular setting for YA historical fiction right now!

I love the 1920's style so this sounds like a series I might look into when it comes out. Great pick, Rebecca :)

This sounds wonderful! And I didn't even know about the Bright Young Things series. Had no idea the '20s were a trend in YA!
