What else do you need to survive high school?
When blond surfer Lissa Mansfield transfers from Santa Barbara to posh Gloria Stanford Fremont Preparatory Academy in San Francisco, she figures joining the in-crowd will be easy. But obstacles at the boarding school soon start mounting up—and it’s not just that the current queen bee is determined she’ll be a wannabe forever. There’s her new roommate, Gillian Chang, who’s as loud as a New York taxi about how happy she is to be a Christian. If Lissa can just downplay her faith long enough to get the attention of Callum McCloud, the hottest guy she’s ever seen, she’ll be golden.
But when the price of being Callum’s lady means he expects her to go all the way with him, Lissa has to decide exactly where the line is—and whether she’s prepared to cross it. Between that, discerning friend from frenemy, and finding a place on the committee for the biggest media event of the year … who knew life at Glory Prep could be so complicated?
“This book is so much fun. The characters are charming and right from the beginning I was pulling for Lissa to make the right choices.” —Jill Hart, Trashionista.com
“In the first novel of her new YA series, Adina does a good job realistically portraying characters who are not only growing up, but doing so with religion as a huge constant in their lives. Rarely, if ever, are the characters preachy, and Lissa and Gillian are fine role models for any religion.” —RT Book Reviews
