Summary of the Book:

All it takes is one spark to start a blaze.

At Foxham Prep, a posh private school for the children of DC’s elite, a single rumor has the power to ruin a life.

Nobody knows that better than Bryn. She used to have it all—the perfect boyfriend, a bright future in politics, and even popularity, thanks to her best friend, cheer captain Cora. Then one mistake sparked a scandal that burned it all to the ground.

Now it’s the start of a new school year and the spotlight has shifted: It’s geeky Georgie, newly hot after a summer makeover, whose name is on everyone’s lips. When a rumor ignites, Georgie rockets up the school’s social hierarchy, pitting her and Cora against each other. It grants her Foxham stardom . . . but it also makes her a target.

As the rumors grow and morph, blazing like wildfire through the school’s social media, all three girls’ lives begin to unravel. But one person close to the drama has the power to stop the gossip in its tracks. The question is—do they even want to?

From Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra, authors of the Tiny Pretty Things duology (now a Netflix series), comes the edge-of-your-seat social thriller everyone will be talking about.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is a book that is all about when things are taken out of context. When cruel rumors and pictures hold all the power. There are three girls whose lives are put on display by their classes at an elite prep school. Bryn is glad when the new school year starts that all eyes are no longer on her but pit Georgie and Cora against each other. Bryn does want to make things better and there is someone who is close to them all who could do something about it. But will they make that call to do something or stand by and just keep watching the drama? You will have to read to discover what happens.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
