Alex Middleton is a girl, clearly. Or perhaps not. Three years back, a tragedy occurred. Through this tragedy came hiding and one clever facade. Alex is forced to charade as boy, and has for the last three years of her life. After being kicked out of her last school, which really isn't anything new, Alex attempts another. This school though, is different. Here there is a boy who will unfortunately (?) have a secret admirer as his roommate.
