Description

This is going to be big. -Entertainment Weekly

"Juicy, clever, and beguiling. -Cecily von Ziegsar, author of the Gossip Girl novels

A young woman haunted by a family tragedy is caught up in a dangerous web of lies and deception involving a secret society in this highly charged, addictive psychological thriller that combines the dishy gamesmanship of Gossip Girl with the murky atmosphere of The Secret History.

One summer day, Grace Fairchild, the beautiful young wife of real estate mogul Alistair Calloway, vanished from the family's lake house without a trace, leaving behind her seven-year old daughter, Charlie, and a slew of unanswered questions.

Years later, seventeen-year-old Charlie still struggles with the dark legacy of her family name and the mystery surrounding her mother. Determined to finally let go of the past, she throws herself into life at Knollwood, the prestigious New England school she attends. Charlie quickly becomes friends with Knollwood's it crowd.

Charlie has also been tapped by the A's--the school's elite secret society well known for terrorizing the faculty, administration, and their enemies. To become a member of the A's, Charlie must play The Game, a semester-long, diabolical high-stakes scavenger hunt that will jeopardize her friendships, her reputation, even her place at Knollwood.

As the dark events of past and present converge, Charlie begins to fear that she may not survive the terrible truth about her family, her school, and her own life.

Back cover copy

Beware of the company you keep . . .

2007: As the wife of billionaire real estate mogul Alistair Calloway, Grace Calloway's life looks golden. She has an Upper East Side penthouse, a sumptuous lakeside mansion, two lovely daughters, and a doting husband. What reason could there be for her to vanish without a trace?

2017: Seventeen-year-old Charlotte "Charlie" Calloway is bright, beautiful, and privileged--just like many other students at New England's prestigious Knollwood Prep. At Knollwood, Charlie has found a sense of belonging to fill the emptiness left by her mother's disappearance. And this semester, she's been tapped by the A's--Knollwood's most exclusive and mysterious society.

Charlie is determined to pass the club's fiendishly difficult, semester-long initiation process. But it's not so easy to distract herself from her past, especially as new revelations about her mother emerge. And as each successive task forces Charlie to question her loyalties and friendships, she realizes that one never knows the secrets others are hiding--or how far they'll go to protect them. . . .
