In the beginning, Aaron Wellington starts the scene in a resort down in the Caribbean.
Among the people she's with, everyone lives a little on the edge, a little spoiled, and a little competitive.
While she's away at this resort for the summer, she encounters Taylor Hyatt- handsome, smart, charming, and a loyal friend who talks a lot.
Alistair Coffman Boarding School in New York accepts her the following year for high school, and that starts something entirely new.
Taylor, who already attends Coffman, welcomes her to the campus.
She continues talking with Taylor, and they gradually start getting closer and closer.
A new school means new guys for Aaron.
And she forgets, that with new guys for her means new girls for Taylor.
Along with the new social groups, standards, workload, teams, and competition, this boarding school has really been a set up for Aaron.
