Overview

Wealthy, reserved sixteen-year-old Sloan Fredericks never thought she would be in the middle of a political scandal. When she told her friends that a high-ranking government official made a pass at her, she didn't imagine that the news would end up in a gossip column the next day. To make matters worse, Sloan's best friend, Justine, admits to having a fling with the same politician, and rumors spiral out of control.

Orphaned at a young age, Sloan lives with her politically powerful grandmother, who tries to arrange a cover-up to protect the family name. When Sloan discovers this is not the only cover-up her grandmother is responsible for, she feels suffocated by the deceit that surrounds her. Sloan must figure out not only who is telling the truth but what it means, and how it affects who she is.

In this absorbding novel, Susan Beth Pfeffer portrays a teenage girl's rude awakening to the complex relationship of words, honesty and falsehood.

"Pfeffer has created true-to-life characters and a skillfully spun plot with several unexpected tangles." Publisher's Weekly

Editorial Reviews
