Description of this Book

Pretty Little Liars meets Ocean's 11 in this intrigue-filled contemporary drama from acclaimed author Kristen Simmons. Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists. When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom's loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances. At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials--because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that's before she meets her mark--a senator's son--and before she discovers the school's headmaster has secrets he'll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she's in way over head.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Like The Handmaid's Tale, Simmons's book serves as essential commentary on women's rights. --Cosmopolitan.com on The Glass Arrow A compelling, inspiring read. By the time it was over, I had my fist in the air. --Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author on Metaltown A dystopian unlike any other I have read. --The Huffington Post on Article 5 A harrowing world. Pacifica will have you breathlessly fearing our own future. --Sara Raasch, New York Times bestselling author I'm clutching my mangled heart and smiling madly. It's that kind of book. Such gorgeous heartbreak! Ty, Colin, and Lena owned me for 372 pages, and long after I finished reading. Smart, absorbing, and deeply human. --Laini Taylor, National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Daughter of Smoke & Bone on Metaltown
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
