The VISCOUNT’s Daughter
by Caitlyn Duffy
In some ways, Betsey Norfleet has it all… her dad’s in a famous rock band, her mom runs a glamorous cosmetics company, and her celebutante older sister is the darling of the fashion world. She even has a royal title.
But Betsey has a secret, one so terrible that she doesn’t think she can tell anyone. To prevent anyone from finding out the terrible truth about what happened to her over the summer, she arranges to have herself sent off to the Treadwell Academy, a prestigious boarding school in Massachusetts where she hopes to become better friends with Taylor Beauforte, the daughter of one of her dad’s friends.
Under terrible circumstances, Betsey’s able to create the life for herself that she’s always wanted. She starts earning good grades, makes new friends, discovers new skills and even gains the trust of Taylor. But despite all the positive things in her new life, she knows that the truth will catch up to her, eventually. Desperate to accompany Taylor on a school trip to Madrid to visit Taylor’s boyfriend, Todd, Betsey knows she’s risking everything in her life just to keep hiding. Will she ever find the courage to confide in someone, and if she does, will it be too late for anyone to believe her?
In this continuation of the story of the lives of the girls readers first met in The Rock Star’s Daughter, Betsey steps out from her sister’s shadow to shine.
