Description

"Deeply felt, powerful, devastating and, ultimately, hopeful." -- Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun Is Also a Star
"Powerful and necessary...an important, timely book." --Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be
"A story that belongs in every library." --School Library Journal (starred review)
"A thoughtfully crafted argument for feminism and allyship." --Kirkus Reviews

From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Brendan Kiely, a stunning novel that explores the insidious nature of tradition at a prestigious boarding school.

Prestigious. Powerful. Privileged. This is Fullbrook Academy.

Jules Devereux just wants to keep her head down, avoid distractions, and get into the right college, so she can leave Fullbrook and its old-boy social codes behind.

Jamie Baxter feels like an imposter at Fullbrook, but the hockey scholarship that got him in has given him a chance to escape his past and fulfill the dreams of his parents and coaches, whose mantra rings in his ears: Don't disappoint us.

As Jules and Jamie's lives intertwine, and the pressures to play by the rules and to keep the school's toxic secrets, they are faced with a powerful choice: remain silent while others get hurt, or stand together against the ugly, sexist traditions of an institution that believes it can do no wrong.
