Fans of We Were Liars and The Secret History will devour this layered, ensemble-cast novel, which will keep readers thinking--and guessing--until the final pages. How far would you go to be perfect?Kara has the perfect life. She gets perfect grades. She never messes up. Until now. Because perfection is an illusion, and Kara has been struggling to maintain it for as long as she can remember. Which is why she does something she never thought she'd do. Something risky--and illegal. Before she knows it, Kara's life veers wildly off its perfect course, and she's thrown headlong into a world of new friends, wild parties, alluring romance, and dark secrets. She's forced to confront how far she's willing to go to be perfect--and in the end, if that's something she really wants to be.
