When Simon's dad gets transferred, things start to get weird. His new school is mixed up, with cliques blending into one another, blurring the lines between cool, loser and normal. But the odd social structure is nothing compared to the people he meets. Harriet, the smiley student council president, and her best friend Annabelle. Annabelle, who Simon desperately wants to know more about. Annabelle, and the mysterious Jack, who know one wants to talk about. Oh, and there's an old face back in town.
