Back cover copy

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO BE PERFECT? Kara has the perfect life. She gets perfect grades. She has perfect skin. She never messes up. Until now. Because perfection is an illusion, and Kara has been struggling to maintain it for as long as she can remember. To live up to the pressure, she does something she never thought she'd do. Something risky--and illegal. Before she knows it, Kara's life veers wildly off its perfect course. She finds herself part of an unlikely group of classmates, all bound together by secrets of their own. Secrets that could destroy them. Humiliate them. Even land them in jail. Secrets that are being used against them. Soon Kara is forced to confront how far she's willing to go to be perfect. Because if she doesn't follow the rules, her perfect future will go up in flames. I had nothing to lose. Nothing I cared about, anyway. I put the pill in my mouth and swallowed.show more
