This book discusses the serious topics in a light and interesting way. The characters that the writer made have a strong personality. Each character played a vital role in the story.

The pace of the story is good, so is the flow of the story. The sequence of the events that this story has been amazing. The book started at low key but later, it was getting interesting. For the first few pages, it was difficult to connect but later it was brilliant.

This language used by the author is simple and easy. The writing style of the author is Lucid and Gripping. The way He conveyed each and every emotion is commendable. He discussed topics like Rape culture, toxic masculinity in an apt way. Politics, Love, friendship, relationships, Social issues are the themes that you will find in the book.

Prestigious. Powerful. Privileged. This is Fullbrook Academy, an elite prep school where history looms in the leafy branches over its brick walkways. But some traditions upheld in its hallowed halls are profoundly dangerous.

Jules Devereux just wants to keep her head down, avoid distractions, and get into the right college, so she can leave Fullbrook and its old-boy social codes behind. She wants freedom, but ex-boyfriends and ex-best friends are determined to keep her in place.

Jamie Baxter feels like an imposter at Fullbrook, but the hockey scholarship that got him in has given him a chance to escape his past and fulfill the dreams of his parents and coaches, whose mantra rings in his ears: Don’t disappoint us.

When Jamie and Jules meet, they recognize in each other a similar instinct for survival, but at a school where girls in the student handbook are rated by their looks, athletes stack hockey pucks in dorm room windows like notches on a bedpost, and school-sponsored dances push first year girls out into the night with senior boys, the stakes for safe sex, real love, and true friendship couldn’t be higher.

As Jules and Jamie’s lives intertwine, and the pressures to play by the rules and remain silent about the school’s secrets intensify, they see Fullbrook for what it really is. That tradition, a word Fullbrook hides behind, can be ugly, even violent. Ultimately, Jules and Jamie are faced with the difficult question: can they stand together against classmates—and an institution—who believe they can do no wrong.
