Sara Black is tiptoeing across a fraying tightrope.
As "the" new eleventh grader at Anton High the most elite public school in the country she sticks out like an old VW bus in a parking lot full of shiny BMWs. But being the new kid also brings a certain advantageous anonymity.
In Anton High's world of privilege, intelligence, and wealth, Sara can escape her family's tarnished past and become whomever she wants.
And what's the harm in telling a few little black lies when it can lead to popularity? That is, until another "it" girl at Anton becomes jealous of Sara's social climbing.
With her balance evaporating, one small push could bring Sara crashing down.
