A group of friends start a secret society in this out-of-control thriller from the author of The Telling and The Creeping that examines the all-consuming love of lifelong friendship—and what someone is capable of when they’re afraid of losing it.
Izzie loves nothing more than her three best friends, Viv, Graham, and Harry, and the bond the four of them share. And she’s terrified of their friendship falling apart next year when they go off to college. To bind them together, she decides to create that will belong only to them, a special thing that they’ll always share between the four of them. And so they dream up the Order of IV, a secret society devoted to mischief that rights wrongs and pays back debts. At first, it works like a charm—but when the Order of IV’s escapades get recognition beyond their wildest expectations, other people start wanting in. And soon, what started as a game of friendship is spiraling into something dangerous and beyond their control—and before it’s over, they’ll pay the ultimate sacrifice.
Hello, everyone! How have you been?! Welcome to today´s stop for the Blog Tour of First We Were IV by Alexandra Sirowy! We would first like to thank Brittany from BookRambles, Alexandra Sirowy and Simon and Schuster for giving us this amazing opportunity <3
Our post for today is:
If you were going to invent a secret society, what would its rules be?
I think that rules are very fundamental in order to have a secret society.
It´s important that the members that are part of it follow them in order to have a good environment not only inside the society but outside of it as well. They have to learn how to hang out together and to always respect each other because after all, they’re there for a reason right.
They must have something in common.
The goal of my secret society would be to always fight for the right thing. <3
Now I´m going to share with you guys the rules of my secret society, and if you want to join let me know ;D We´ll have cookies and cake 😀
I think it´s important that every single member of the society, even those who are in charge never lie because they are giving an example to the rest of the members. That way there wouldn´t be any misunderstandings with each other, it would be a nice environment in which the members wouldn´t be wondering if what others are saying is true.
The point of having a secret society is that it’s a secret ;D
No one should talk about the society with anyone else, there wouldn´t be secrecy anymore and
that´s important in order for the society to work.
The people that belong to the society belong because they have more than one thing in common.
It´s important that they see each other as friends, maybe even as brothers and sisters, so in case someone was in danger, they should be sure that their friends will always be there to protect them.
To have a good environment inside the society it´s fundamental to respect everyone no matter their rank inside the society.
All the members should be able to tell what they know to the rest of the society.
If they ever came across important information or news they should tell the others; It´s important to have communication inside the society.
I think this rule is important in order for the society to maintain its secrecy.
Only those with a high rank should be able to recruit other members that they think could be good for the society, for example like following the rules. If everyone were able to recruit other people, I feel like everything would go out of control.
Because if they do, they will be rewarded with cookies 😀 *LOL* for real guys, who doesn’t like cookies?!?!
