Playing with Fire is by Emily Blake. The first book in the Little Secrets series. Think Clique meets Mean Girls. This series focuses on two cousins and their extremely rich and nasty family. When Alison's mother is arrested for fraud (having been turned in by her mother) she believes she can turn to her cousin Kelley for support. Kelley uses the opportunity to steal Alison's boyfriend and leave her stranded in the middle of her time of crisis. Then there's Zoey who used to be Alison's friend and now only wants revenge. Let the drama and nastiness begin. Better than the Clique series, but with kids who are just as spoiled and in desperate need of parents.
