What makes ''Private'' really stand out from other similar chick-lit novels is the revelation in each book of a [[AxCrazy psycho]], [[TheKillerInMe murderer]] or general RichBitch character who tries to make Reed's life hell. Think of ''GossipGirl'' meets ''Literature/TheClique'' with even more obnoxious characters. All in all, an excellent example of a GuiltyPleasure. Now has its own CharacterSheet under construction.

* BrutalHonesty: Both Noelle and Kiran are known for this. With Kiran however it is the result of [[spoiler: her drinking.]]
* CostumePorn: Every paragraph is punctuated with detailed descriptions of the colour, make and designer of the clothes the characters are wearing. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since the setting is that of an ultra-rich academy.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The '''Privilege''' [[SpinOff SpinOffSeries]]. And that's saying something.

* DamselInDistress: Reed Brennan is an example par-excellence. She's been the target of stalking, attempted murder, attempted expulsion, false accusations and the like throughout the series. She would be TheWoobie if she wasn't so much of a {{Jerkass}} at times.
