Sam's first day at Fallen Crest Public doesn't go well. Some girls want to be her. Some girls want to destroy her. And some just don't like her. All in all, despite being protected by Mason and Logan, it's still only the strong survive. Sam will not only have to survive, she needs to learn how to conquer too, but there's another battle growing. Things are about to come to a disastrous end between the towns, Roussou and Fallen Crest. Sam's other main dilemma? Keeping Mason and Logan from getting arrested or hospitalized.

In Review: My Thoughts
There’s just something about Tijan’s writing, this series and these characters that I find absolutely irresistible. The writing is honest and real and incredible. The series is absolutely engrossing. The characters are complex and damaged and, quite frankly, at times, not very likable, but somehow I still freaking love them. Especially Mason. Mmm. Mason. Sure, he’s twisted and scheming and diabolical, but he’s sexy as hell and even the most twisted things he does make some sort of odd, but perfect sense.
The Sam I liked so much in the first book in this series is back! She kind of lost herself along the way in the second book, so I was really glad to see her back in this one. She was strong and determined and could stand on her own again. Yes, she obviously loved Mason, but it was great to see her spunky, feisty side again.
This isn’t your typical young adult book. None of Tijan’s books could be called typical. The world these kids live in is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and sometimes it’s difficult to wrap my head around it. Fallen Crest Public starts off with a scene that is oh-so-very hot (and definitely not for kids!). But wow. It grabbed my attention… that’s for sure. Some of the events of this book were flat-out disturbing. Others were sweet or sexy. It made me feel all the feels. While I can’t say I was exactly surprised at the revelation at the end, I can admit that I am absolutely dying to see how this development is handled in the next book.
