Lexi, Keira, Meg and Roxy â€“ four names otherwise known as the Inner Circle.
In West Pacific Preparatory School, and even in the private schools surrounding it, everybody knows their name, and everybody knows that they are at the top of the social ranking. It has always been this way for as long as anyone can rememberâ€¦ well, at least from the beginning of seventh grade.
So when the second semester of freshman year rolled around, nobody expected anything to change in their social infrastructure. But then, innocent newbie Taryn Rose Paterkate makes an entrance at their school.
And it seems like she doesnâ€™t know much about their social hierarchy, and she doesnâ€™t seem like someone who could or would want to shake up the whole carefully arranged system. So is it just a coincidence that, right around the time of her arrival, things start to change?
As the end of freshman year rolled around, each girl learns very important lessons â€“ and everyone finds out that nothing, no matter how structured, will ever stay the same forever.
