The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
Avery's mother's job requires them to move regularly so Avery has learned to keep to herself and not form close friendships. But something about Jack causes her to change her mind and say yes when he asks her to go to the prom with him. Unsure what made her agree to go, Avery is further surprised when they are approached by Stellan who says Avery needs to leave with him immediately and whom Jack seems to know. Avery learns that they are part of a secret world of families known as The Circle of Twelve and that her own father is the head of one of these families. Anxious to finally meet him she is swept away to Istanbul and Paris but danger is never more than a few steps behind.
Reviews liken this book to those by Ally Carter and I would agree with that. Unfortunately, I haven't really cared for Ally Carter's stories personally. I can see that this would be fairly popular with girls since both Stellan and Jack are studs and the descriptions of the clothes Avery gets to wear are detailed.
