 For sixth-form student Grace Becker, The 100 Society is more than just a game; it's an obsession. Having convinced her five friends at Clifton Academy to see it through to the end, Grace will stop at nothing to carry out the rules of the game: tagging 100 locations around the city. With each step closer to the 100-mark they get, the higher the stakes become. But when the group catches the attention of a menacing stalker - the Reaper - he seems intent on exposing their illegal game, tormenting Grace with anonymous threats and branding their dormitory doors with his ominous tag.

As the once tight-knit group slowly unravels, torn apart by doubt and the death of a student, they no longer know who to trust.

With time running out, Grace must unmask the Reaper before he destroys everything she cares about for ever...

The 100 Society is an average read for me, I neither really enjoyed it or hated it. And these types for me, are the hardest to review because I didn't not like it, it was okay, but it didn't wow me. The 100 Society is appropriately named after a graffiti artist that left his tag in a 100 placed in various placed ranging from easy to tag and downright insane and dangerous to tag. I've only ever read anything to do with Graffiti once before, so it's still pretty unique to me and I enjoyed that side of things, though besides the opening chapter, there wasn't much tagging going on after that- not from our main characters anyway.
