Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this start to a thrilling, subversive near future series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young about a girls-only private high school that is far more than it appears to be.

Some of the prettiest flowers have the sharpest thorns.

The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved—it says so on their report cards. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardian, they receive a well-rounded education that promises to make them better. Obedient girls, free from arrogance or defiance. Free from troublesome opinions or individual interests.

But the girls’ carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears. As Mena and her friends uncover the dark secrets of what’s actually happening there—and who they really are—the girls of Innovations Academy will learn to fight back.

Bringing the trademark plot twists and high-octane drama that made The Program a bestselling and award-winning series, Suzanne Young launches a new series that confronts some of today's most pressing ethical questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not a book about hockey! It's a page turning Sci Fi Dystopian Thriller. Innovations Academy is an all girls school set in a dystopian world that feels very archaic. The girls live in a carefully controlled environment that requires them to be beautiful and obedient. When Mena makes contact with a boy from the outside she begins to question everything they are being taught. As she tries to convince her friends to fight back, horrible dark secrets are revealed. The first in a series, this suspenseful book will appeal to Sci Fi lovers’ aged 13 to adult.
