Eighteen-year-old twins Adam and Amelia Dory have been bounced around foster homes for as long as they can remember, relying only on each other. But their lives change dramatically when they start out as freshmen at Stanford University. They are suddenly introduced to the dazzling world of Silicon Valley, where any person with a good enough idea can skyrocket to money, power and fame...Amelia is almost as pretty as she is smart-not that she notices or cares much about either. She has always been a genius with computers and would happily spend all day in the lab if she could, making her ideas come to life. But Adam has plans for her skills that will thrust her into the spotlight whether she likes it or not. He sees the beautiful and entitled children of wealthy executives and wants to run in their circles...especially Lisa Bristol's, the stunningly gorgeous daughter of one of the biggest names in town. And then there's Amelia's roommate, Patty Hawkins. She may have a glitzy Silicon Valley background, but she has her own carefully concealed problems - including the one secret that could tear apart her family if it ever came out.
As Adam and a reluctant Amelia begin to hatch their new company, they find themselves going from nothing to the verge of everything seemingly overnight. But no amount of money or prestige can prepare them for the envy and back-stabbing of their powerful competitors...
