There are no words to explain how well-written this book is. I started the book and finished it in a few hours. Not once did I put it down. I wish I could read it again.

I recommend it 100% to everyone.

Kate is sucked into a dizzying social whirl at her new school, which revolves around basketball. The players can do no wrong, and are heroes of the whole school. But Kate soon discovers that they take their power too far. Will she brave ostracizing and speak out? Disturbing. Hard to read. But an absolute must-read after cases like Steubenville.
