“I’m suggesting a deal of sorts.” Principal Blythe studies my face with intensity. Her words are slow and carefully selected. “I want you to help me expel a student, Erika.”When Erika Monroe is approached with an offer too tempting to refuse – a scholarship to her dream college – she signs up to plot the expulsion of Lindale High’s notorious flirt and rule-breaker, Chase Thatcher. Her plan is simple: catch him in an act of wrongdoing and give the principal the evidence she needs to expel him.But as Erika finds herself increasingly entangled in a web of lies, moral dilemmas, and bad behavior (not to mention those pesky feelings), it quickly becomes clear that her path to Stanford won’t be as clear-cut as she had hoped. And with Chase, being bad feels kinda good…Confronted by decisions about who she is and what she stands for, how long can Erika continue to hide behind frenemy lines?
