Overview

Andrea Faraday is junior class valedictorian at the exclusive Woodruff School, where she was voted Most Likely to Do Everything Right. But looks can be deceiving. When her parents disappear, her life--and her Perfect Girl charade--begins to crumble, and her scheme to put things right just takes the situation from bad to so much worse. Pretty soon she's struck up the world's least likely friendship with the juvenile delinquents at Justice Academy, the last exit on the road to jail--and the first stop on the way out.

If she were telling it straight, friendship might not be the right word to describe their alliance, since Drea and her new associates could not be more different. She's rich and privileged; they're broke and, well, criminal. But Drea's got a secret: she has more in common with the juvie kids than they'd ever suspect. When it turns out they share a common enemy, Drea suggests they join forces to set things right. Sometimes, to save the day, a good girl's gotta be bad.

Sixteen-year-old Drea Faraday may be at the top of her class at the exclusive Woodruff School in suburban Atlanta, but that doesn’t stop her secrets from coming out in this socially conscious crime thriller. While Reid (the Langdon Prep series) hooks readers early on with details about Drea’s parents’ shady history in the antiques market, as well as the orchestrated theft of dozens of luxury cars, the story soon pivots into an exploration of the criminal justice system. After Drea’s parents disappear, she gets caught up in a break-in at her school, winds up tutoring students at Justice Academy—an alternative high school that aims to put juvenile delinquents on a better path—and gets blackmailed into an uneasy alliance with Xavier and Jason, the students caught in the Woodruff break-in. While the plot is slightly convoluted, Reid grounds her story in reality, with a diverse cast (Drea is biracial, Xavier is Korean-American), moral gray areas (involving juvenile offenders, attorneys, cops, and more), and ample consideration of the real-life consequences of the characters’ actions. Ages 12–up. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary Agency. (May)
