Shy Celia Balaustine is new to Suburban High, but a mysterious group of sophomores called the Rosary has befriended her. Friends aside, Celia soon discovers something is not quite right at Suburban. Girls at the school begin having near-fatal accidents on the eve of their sixteenth birthdays. Who is causing the accidents, and why? As Celia's own birthday approaches, she is inexorably drawn into an underground conflict between good and evil--the Kind and the Unkind--that bubbles beneath Suburban High. Plentiful references to music and art--along with the intriguing underworld mythology--make this supernatural series debut a page-turner.
