An innovative tie-in series to a dark television comedy about murder at an elite mid-Atlantic boarding school in the early 1990s. It's multi-culti Heathers meets Gossip Girl meets Dead Poets Society, and each book gives the reader a missing piece of the mystery. Who did it? One of the students at St. Ambrose Academy, many of whom row crew and all of whom are striving to be the best. In this WASP ecosystem, you fit in or you get sorted out. But Nina Turner, the African-American series protagonist, and her friends are about to find out that while social suicide is real, it's not the only way to die.
