This is the story of Amelia and Riley, bad kids from bad Brookfield High who have transferred to Ashbury High for their final year. They've been in love since they were fourteen, they go out dancing every night and sleep through school all day. And Ashbury can't get enough of them. Everyone wants to be cooler, tougher, funnier, hoping to be invited into their self-contained world.
But strange things are happening at Ashbury this year. Emily Thompson is certain that a ghost is haunting the Art Rooms. Lydia Jackson-Oberman's parents have left for Tuscany and there are nonstop parties at her house. Toby Mazzerati has taken an unusually strong interest in local history. And the new kids are hiding a secret that no one could have expected, and that could ruin more than just senior year.
