The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.

As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father's recent death weren't enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe's heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.

Now Phoebe's lessons about Shaper's enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star's glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe's caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn't know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself-and her secret power-to get to the truth and to stay alive.

Although shape-shifters aren't usually my thing, this story swept me away. Phoebe is a sixteen-year-old girl, who after the loss of her father, decides to enroll in a special school known as the school 'below'. Hidden beneath a normal school, the one 'above', the school below is for Shifters. But there's a war raging. A group wants to kidnap Phoebe and three other students thanks to a prophecy that claims one of the four harbors secret powers. Despite protection, the kidnappers get their fingers on two of them, and Phoebe knows it's only a matter of time before she will be next. In some ways, this book reminded me of Vampire Academy. There's a school for those with special abilities - Shifters -, romance, outside danger and a heroine with a bit of an attitude. Phoebe is a very self-assured girl and doesn't let others push her around. Still, she's carrying a lot of baggage. As a half breed, she doesn't completely fit in and struggles with this outwardly as well as inwardly. She never comes across pitiful or naive, but uses her head and doesn't let things get her down. And this is what makes her easy to cheer for until the end. The romance sprinkles nicely between the main plot, allowing the action and mystery to stay as the main focus. It's not quite a love at first sight, but it's clear from the beginning that Phoebe will end up with her prince. He does harbor a few secrets of his own, which add a nice twist not only to this book but several possible plot bunnies for the rest of the series. The author has built a complex world of shifters and their politics. Although this seems like it might get confusing during the first chapters, it quickly smooths out as the adventure unfolds. As the layers of intriguing start to appear, the information behind this world slides neatly into place. Not only did this book provide many unexpected twists and turns, but the groundwork is laid for even more intrigue to come. And I'm looking forward to see what happens to Phoebe next. I received a complimentary copy and was so surprised at how much I enjoyed this book that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts and opinions.
