Maddie Elliot's life in the sleepy town of Hallow's Wood was simple before Ingrid Brooke arrived. Now, both girls are locked in a tangle of secrets, lies and jealousy...and they're about to learn that all friendships come at a price.
Maddie always dreamed of being popular. Ingrid grew up in California, with rich parents and masses of friends, and when she arrives for senior year in Hallow's Wood she gives Maddie the one thing she's always wanted: a seat beside her, on the throne of popularity.
With Ingrid's help, Maddie is suddenly swept off her feet, into a world of sex, drugs and gossip-and it's amazing, until things start to go wrong.
After a trip to California, where she finds herself a little more than close to Ingrid's older brother, Maddie starts to realize Ingrid could be hiding a few dark secrets that are dangerous for both girls-not to mention the boys chasing on their heels. Trouble starts coming at Maddie from a different angle when she receives a chain of creepy letters from a 'secret admirer'...
Then, just when she believes things can't get any worse, Maddie uncovers the worst secret of all-one that could rip her new friendship, and her relationship, apart. But now that she's a popular girl, can the girls make the right decision, or have they already fallen too deeply into the popularity debt?
