For D.C. royalty Brinley Madison, the first day is about establishing social hierarchy and playing the perfect political wife to her boyfriend, the outgoing Vice President's son. Too bad he has a wandering eye. Can she keep him, and her own vice, in check?
Ellie Walker floats on the arm of golden boy Hunter McKnight. But when her ex-boyfriend returns and her Senator mother's nemesis is re-elected, Ellie's life snowballs out of control.
Shy, quiet Evan Hartnett is more into books than beer. No one's ever noticed her--but she's been noticing them. As her star rises, her worlds collide in ways that make her question what's secret and what's fair game.
New girl Taryn Reyes is California cool; with a father in line to be the first Hispanic president, she's ready for the D.C. scene. But her fellow students are more interested in spreading rumors than making friends.

About the Author
Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz met the first day of freshman year at the University of Southern California and instantly bonded over their obsessions with Brenda Walsh, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and The Babysitters Club books they read growing up. After spending a full year mourning the end of college, they began writing television and feature scripts together. They have set up pilots at ABC, NBC, Fox and CW, and sold films to The Weinstein Company, Happy Madison, Paramount, New Regency, MGM and Alloy Entertainment. They love writing female-centric stories, especially for teen and tween audiences, mainly because they still think they are the 18-year-old girls they were when they first met at USC.
