If you love The Great Gatsby, you'll want to read the Flappers series.
Joy and tragedy collide in DIVA, the riveting conclusion to the Flappers series, set in the dazzling Roaring Twenties. Parties, bad boys, speakeasies—life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur for Clara Knowles. If Marcus Eastman truly loved her, how could he have fallen for another girl so quickly? Their romance mustn't have been as magical as Clara thought. And if she has to be unhappy, she's going to drag everyone else down to the depths of despair right along with her.
Being a Barnard girl is the stuff of Lorraine Dyer's dreams. Finding out that Marcus is marrying a gold digger who may or may not be named Anastasia? A nightmare. The old Lorraine would have sat by and let the chips fall where they may, but she's grown up a lot these past few months. She can't bear to see Marcus lose a chance for true love. But will anyone listen to her?
Now that the charges against her have been dropped, Gloria Carmody is spending the last dizzying days of summer on Long Island, yachting on the sound and palling around with socialites at Forrest Hamilton's swanky villa. Beneath her smile, though, Gloria's keeping a secret. One that could have deadly consequences . . .

JILLIAN LARKIN's fascination with flappers and the 1920s era began during her childhood, which included frequent home screenings of the classic Julie Andrews and Carol Channing film Thoroughly Modern Millie. She lives in New York.From Booklist:
The conclusion to the Flappers series finds rich girl Gloria in prison, while her African American boyfriend is losing jobs playing piano because of the notoriety. Meanwhile, cousin Clara, a gossip reporter for the Manhattanite, is dealing with rejection from her boyfriend, who seems to have found another girl rather quickly (is she a gold digger?). As in the previous books, there’s lots of smoke, jazz, dancing, danger, and, of course, romance. This doesn’t stand alone, and one can’t look too closely at how Gloria gets out of jail, but those who’ve been following the flappers will likely be very happy with the ending. Grades 9-12. --Ilene Cooper
