From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Brendan Kiely, a stunning new novel about male privilege, consent, and finding the courage to do what is right. Perfect for fans of 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale.
Fullbrook Academy is an elite prep school where history looms in the leafy branches over its brick walkways. But some of the traditions upheld in its hallowed halls are profoundly dangerous.
Jules is in her senior year. She hates Fullbrook for its culture of misogyny and can’t wait to escape. Jamie, a sports star on a scholarship, is new to Fullbrook and uncovers the darker privileges enjoyed by some of his wealthier classmates. The one thing Jules and Jamie have in common is a shared commitment to survival.
One fateful party brings to the fore the school’s capacity to mask its ugly secrets behind its traditions. Ultimately, Jules and Jamie are faced with the difficult question: can they stand together against classmates – and an institution – who believe they can do no wrong? A timely book that explores the toxic rape culture and the power to unite against it.
