Ever since Lissy and Lexie James arrived in town, Lilah's perfect world has been coming unhinged. No-one else can see the ghost who's trailing her around campus, and - forget the rumour mill - her memories have her more sidetracked than any gossip could. It looks as if the James family legacy of supernatural sight might be contagious. And to make matters worse, mutiny is brewing among the Goldens, and if Lilah isn't careful, she may just lose her top-tier boyfriend to her second-in-command. Lilah knows the rules better than anyone, but between her newfound visions, an absolutely fatal attraction to a boy who isn't real, and the threat of a supernatural enemy with a sting deadlier than any Queen Bee, it's going to take everything Lilah has to stay on top at Emory. And to prove once and for all that - highlights and high heels aside - those who make the rules are the only ones who can break them.

203 pages. Pete, in his last year of high school, is hit with a giant wave of disillusion about his future. His final year is supposed to be when he has 'made it'. Teachers, parents, advertising campaigns all tell him he's had some of the best years of his life and now he should be ready and amped to launch off into adulthood, and the so-called real world. But when he looks at that world, it all seems like more of the same: one great big empty con. Itchy, antsy, angry - and not really understanding exactly why - he finds himself staging a spontaneous anti-you-name-it protest at a local Prince of Burgers franchise. Which gets him on the news. Which draws the attentions of Sophie, a troubled young woman at his school, who sets up a website in his support. Which - given the instantaneous reach of the Net - starts a chain reaction of copycat protests around the world. All of which can't escape notice of the Prince of Burgers' management team. Soon two of its company psychologists, Lucinda and Marcus, want to interview Pete. Intrigued by his angry energy, and his angle on society, they think he might be made of the stuff that could win him a study scholarship. Has Pete's view of corporate ethics been misguided? Meanwhile, Sophie, his fanclub website manager, has developed an unhealthy obsession with Pete's antics. She is following his every move - and she has her own suspicions about why Lucinda and Marcus are so fascinated by Pete. She thinks she knows the truth - but who can the reader trust?
