Enroll in this boarding school thriller about a group of prep school elites who would kill to get into the college of their dreams...literally. The Plastics meet the Heathers in this murder mystery about ruthless Ivy League ambition. -Kirkus Reviews
Everyone knows the Ivies: the most coveted universities in the United States. Far more important are the Ivies.
The Ivies at Claflin Academy, that is. Five girls with the same mission: to get into the Ivy League by any means necessary. I would know. I'm one of them. We disrupt class ranks, club leaderships, and academic competitions...among other things. We improve our own odds by decreasing the fortunes of others. Because hyper-elite competitive college admissions is serious business. And in some cases, it's deadly.
Alexa Donne delivers a nail-biting and timely thriller about teens who will stop at nothing to get into the college of their dreams. Too bad no one told them murder isn't an extracurricular.Author:
