Two unlikely students fight an anonymous entity that threatens to unravel their lives.

What do the most popular girl in Niveus Academy, a prestigious boarding school, and a boy who would have been happy to go unnoticed until graduation have in common? An anonymous person who goes by Aces is sending text messages that reveal their secrets--secrets that are slowly unraveling their worlds.

This book provides a compelling story surrounding privilege and what it means to be considered "the best." This book was profound in its haunting tellings for the lives of these two Black students who are being targeted. Àbíké-Íyímídé weaves themes of systematic racism, white supremacy, and microaggressions into a story that contains characters that leap right off the page.
