Ariel’s therapist thinks an all-girls boarding school will help the high school freshman banish her crippling anxiety. She immediately befriends suitemates Jess, Jan and Mandy, but the school and its stylishly intimidating headmistress are harboring secrets. On her very first day, Ariel stumbles across one. What no-one at the Lily Academy appreciates is that this secret has links to organized crime and international espionage that will, within a very few days, put Ariel and her suite-mates in mortal danger. In the mean time, her secret sorority initiation ends in disaster, she develops a hopeless crush on Chad, a darkly handsome member of the school’s security staff, and another new friend unwittingly forces Ariel to confront her own personal demons. Will she be overwhelmed? Or, will she rise to these challenges? And what role will Dr. Vivian and her mysterious sisterhood play?
