When the world turns into a dark, bleak, gray place, people tend to turn to a hero to help save them. Growing up, it was difficult for Aella to find one. Watching her neighborhood fall apart at the cruelty of the world, she knew she wanted to be someone the people could look up to, someone they could rely on and call a hero.

Placing her art career on hold, Aella risked her life for others so they wouldn't have to. The thrill of almost taking her life each night she performed a dare was pure ecstasy to her, and she never wanted for it to end.

Yet an opportunity of a lifetime popped up out of the blue. Due to her impeccable art, she was given a full ride scholarship to one of the most prestigious schools in the country.  While there, she has the opportunity to raise money and help her people, becoming a hero who didn't place her life in danger every night. And with her wanting nothing more than to make her aunt happy, she chose to take it.

But when a lower class girl winds up attending a school for the elite 1%, surely not everything goes to plan. Enemies are made, yet friendships are forged. But when the schools star, the Etoile enters her life, she knows everything she had ever known will soon be flipped upside down.
