This book tells a story about a girl named Claudia. The setting is a school for the wealthy, a school where the honor council, which is made up of the best students, controls the school. Claudia tells her point of view as she watches power corrupt people. Claudia has a stutter and a limp, so she prefers to be invisible but has no problem watching her perfect older sister shine. She wants nothing more than to make it through high school with her head down and a clean record. As she gets caught in the struggle of power at her school and eventually rises to the top, will she accept it or turn away and watch the school crumble?

Opinion: 

I enjoyed reading this book. It was closer to the genres I usually read with the premise of everyone fighting for power. I loved reading the story from Claudia's point of view as she slowly realizes her destiny. I also liked that it was in a modern setting, showing more of the problems people deal with today. I thought it was cool that the fortune teller told her about her destiny, but she ignored it until the end when she realized she had fulfilled it. I would recommend this book for people who like betrayal, mystery, and survival as the characters try to figure out who will end up on top.
