Grace Lee is fierce.
Not really, but she needs to be.
A senior prank gone wrong leaves Grace carrying both the blame and a $10,000 fine. Eek! Winning the school’s Most Outstanding Student scholarship is her only hope at avoiding financial crisis and getting back in her parent’s favor. Problem is, “outstanding” requires not just good grades, but song and dance and jazz hands, too.
Enter stage right: Azia J’Adore. She’s the fairy dragmother Grace needs to get out of this pickle. But when an unexpected crush escalates, Grace learns the hard way that all is not fair in love and drag.
Welcome back, Hopkins Prep Tigers! Before we start a new semester, how about I get us caught up on the summer’s juiciest?
I skim through our school’s gossip blog, JustJin, looking for any indication that my secret is out. My hands are shaking, but I have to look, I have to know.
…Rumor has it that the incoming freshman class’ already-minted IT girl just barely had the swelling come down from eyelid surgery in time for Day 1…
Not me. Thank God. Sounds painful.
…I hear there are two new couples coming out of Chemistry’s summer session. What were they concocting in those labs—a lychee love potion?…
Not me. Thank God. Like I have time for dating?
…And finally, in the most shocking news of all, our senior class Mary Sue has found herself in some heat, literally. In an epic fireworks prank gone wrong, the goodiest of two shoes saw both her stellar reputation…and her eyebrows…go up in smoke. Hard to say which will grow back first, her respectability or those singed brows. Stay tuned.
Me. Oh God.
And now the whole school will know and I will be JustScrewed.
