Hailey Kendrick always does exactly what''s expected of her. She has the right friends, dates the perfect boy, gets good grades, and follows all the rules. But one night, Hailey risks everything by breaking a very big rule in a very public way...and with a very unexpected partner in crime. Hailey gets caught, but her accomplice does not, and Hailey takes the fall for both of them.

Suddenly, Hailey''s perfect life--and her reputation--are blowing up in her face. Her friends are all avoiding her. Her teachers don''t trust her. Her boyfriend won''t even speak to her for long enough to tell her that she''s been dumped.

They say honesty is the best policy--but some secrets are worth keeping, no matter the cost. Or are they?

Dating a popular boy and adhering to every rule ever written, a high school senior at an elite Vermont boarding school begins to shed her good girl identity after an angry incident with her distant father.

I kept a neutral smile plastered on my face, but my foot bobbed up and down impatiently. More people have seen Mandy Gallaway’s naked crotch than saw last year’s Super Bowl. The girl’s incapable of getting out of a car without flashing the sixty zillion paparazzi that follow her around. The concept of knees together and underwear on isn’t that complicated, which leaves me to believe she likes the sensation of flashbulbs lighting up where the sun isn’t supposed to shine.

Editorial Reviews

"A frothy blend of social politics, keenly felt angst, boarding-school hijinks, and rom-com banter....Cook offers a nice twist on the classic YA discover-of-a-friend''s-unrequited-feelings-via-accidental-kiss trope." --The Bulletin
