Prep school gets a twist of supernatural suspense in this commercial YA thriller.

Charlotte has always been content in the shadow of her two best friends at the prestigious Underhill Preparatory Institute. Ariel is daring and mysterious. Devon is beautiful and brilliant. Although Charlotte never lived up to the standards of the school—or her demanding mother—her two best friends became the family she never had. When Ariel and Devon suddenly commit suicide within a month of each other, Charlotte refuses to accept it as a coincidence. But as the clues point to a dangerous secret about Underhill Prep, Charlotte is suddenly in over her head. There’s a reason the students of Underhill are so exceptional, and the people responsible are willing to kill to protect the truth…

Suspenseful and scintillating, with hints of the supernatural, this fast-paced thriller will keep readers hooked.


Now on to the excerpt!


Chapter Six
         
Ariel and I met Jack on the same day. In the same class period. At the same moment. He walked into our homeroom, and we looked up andboomJack was in our lives.
          He was a transfer student from the city. Started at Weston our junior year. I had the new-student thing down to a science by then, and I knew the drill. No sudden movements or loud noises. No unnecessary eye contact. You don’t want to spook the animals.
          Jack . . . did not follow those guidelines. His first week at Weston, he signed up to do a comedy set at the under-eighteen club in town. Every single student at our school showed up to see him. We figured he was a theater kid, that he must be some sort of comic genius to take such a big risk.
          He was not a comic genius. In fact, he stank. It was like watching an oddly charming train wreck. He grinned like an idiot when we all finally booed him off the stage. He bowed and doffed an invisible hat. Everyone at Weston fell in love with him at the same second.
          If Jack were a dog, he’d be a golden retriever. If he were an inanimate object, he’d be something bouncy and determined, like a tennis ball. He tries too hard and does too much and doesn’t care about what anyone thinks, except that of course he cares about what everyone thinks.
          “Dibs,” Ariel whispered to me that night, while we were watching him bomb onstage. It took me too long to realize what she’d meant. Jack wasn’t her type. She liked dark, brooding boys with leather jackets and bad attitudes. She liked tattoos and no futures and older, bordering on inappropriate. She didn’t date goofy high school guys. She didn’t appreciate determination and charm.
          But Jack was different. Jack was worth it.
          I felt something shift then that I couldn’t quite name. The sudden emptiness that comes with losing something you hadn’t realized you wanted.
***
You’re wondering if I slept with Ariel’s boyfriend.
If that was why we’d fought. Why she killed herself.
You think the guilt is driving me crazy. You think that’s why I’m so messed up.
Well. I didn’t.

What I did was so much worse.
