Book Review


Will Shea is a scholarship child from a tiny island who is lucky enough to be able to come to one of the nation’s most exclusive schools—at least that’s what he tells everyone. Will is actually a con artist. It’s not too long before he runs into Andrea Dufresne, another scholarship student with a similar background…and a con artist herself. The school isn’t big enough for the two of them, so they decide to start up a little wager. Whoever can con the mark out of fifty thousand dollars by Thanksgiving wins and can stay at the school. This school has a lot more secrets than it can hold and it’s only a matter of time before they start spilling out.
