Author(s): Riley Redgate
Paloma High School is ordinary by anyone's standards. It has the same cliques, the same prejudices and the same suspect cafeteria food. And like every high school, every student has something to hide--whether it's Kat, the thespian who conceals her trust issues onstage, or Valentine, the neurotic genius who's planted the seed of a school scandal. When rumours of a teacher-student affair surface, everyone starts hunting for someone to blame. For the unlikely allies at the heart of it all, the collision of their seven ordinary-seeming lives results in extraordinary change. Riley Redgate's YA debut is told from seven points of view and effortlessly weaves humour and heartbreak into a drama that fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins will adore.
