School can be cutthroat. Friends can backstab. Literally.
Upon arrival at the prestigious Grant Academy for the Gifted, high school senior Bexley Windsor quickly realizes boarding school is far from a liberating escape from her dark past. At her first party, she finds a student's lifeless body sprawled in blood, and she's the only one to blame.
Propelled by school-wide murder accusations, Bexley-with the help of two peers-works to find the killer, who resides within the Academy's walls. But as more discoveries are made, the truth becomes tangled and dangerous. If Bexley fails, she could get expelled, or worse-the killer could strike again.
Mystery lurks beneath the crawling ivy and within the cutthroat elite system. And at Grant Academy, no one can be trusted.
