Chosen by Sarah Perlmutter (author of The Blast and The Deathless Trilogy) for Scikick's first contest! Veritum Academy holds secrets darker than sixteen year old Evangeline could have ever imagined. The prestigious institution is supposedly the best school in the world, but as it turns out, it is also the most dangerous. From the chips in their arms to the harsh ranks and disappearing students, Veritum is not what it seems. As she falls deeper into the academy's web of lies, she begins to to question: why was Veritum created in the first place? And what does it want with their students? Armed with only her wit and arsenal of sarcasm, Evangeline sets out to discover the answers to her questions of Veritim Academy, but the truth may be even uglier than the lies.
