The Pledge Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Pledge

Considering this is the author's first book, it is well written but it tends to be a little wordy at times. It's a story about a small college campus dominated by a powerful fraternity. With the mysterious death of a pledge, the corruption that lies within the school's walls is revealed. Very interesting book.
