From the author's blog:

An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York’s wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.

They didn’t ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything. Even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown, and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they’re forced to get on the nape of their necks.

Once they’re part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It’s all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.

Seriously, how cool does this sound? I love everything, from the cover to the name 'Patch'. I'm drawn to anything set in NY and centred around socialites, so count me in for this one!

Hey, I have that in my pile! Woohoo! For once I'm ahead of the game! As someone that's perpetually 5 minutes behind the times, this is an exciting moment! LOL! And I have that same tattoo! Just . . . lower and . . . bigger.

I like the title and the cover. But the synopsis sounds even better.
