YA Romance Techno Thriller

After my mom dies, I learn that I have an aunt in the fancy town of Royalton. Before I have time to come to terms with losing Mom, I move to Royalton and am enrolled in Royal Bridge Academy. The school is ruled by the Royal Kings and Queens where the requirements to belong are as follows: rich, snobby, and mean. I think I’m protected because my cousin Ethan rules the school, but I’m caught off-guard by the games the Royals play.

All of the characters in this book were great…especially Mira and Ryder. 


 I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. The pacing was perfect, and the storyline kept me interested wondering what would happen next.
