I was so excited to read the rest of this book after reading the sample and was prepared to buy it if I didn't win the raffle! This book follows two black students, Chiamaka and Devon, at Niveus Private Academy. When they are chosen as senior prefects at their school, an anonymous person called Aces starts sharing secrets via text about them in attempt to sabotage their senior year....and their lives.. We watch as Chiamaka and Devon try to identify Ace.

I found this to be a pretty thrilling story to read and it is even more scary to me because it discusses real problems relating to deeply rooted racism in schools. This was so well written and if I wasn't traveling, I would've read the entire thing in one sitting! I don't really read dark academia but this book was too hard to resist! There was school drama, competition, queer representation, and challenging of institutional racism. 100% kickass! So excited to see what more there is to come from Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé!!
