Gossip Girl meets Get Out in Ace of Spades, a YA contemporary thriller by debut author Faridah b k - y m d about two students, Devon & Chiamaka, and their struggles against an anonymous bully.

All you need to know is . . . I'm here to divide and conquer. Like all great tyrants do. --Aces

When two Niveus Private Academy students, Devon Richards and Chiamaka Adebayo, are selected to be part of the elite school's senior class prefects, it looks like their year is off to an amazing start. After all, not only does it look great on college applications, but it officially puts each of them in the running for valedictorian, too.

Shortly after the announcement is made, though, someone who goes by Aces begins using anonymous text messages to reveal secrets about the two of them that turn their lives upside down and threaten every aspect of their carefully planned futures.

As Aces shows no sign of stopping, what seemed like a sick prank quickly turns into a dangerous game, with all the cards stacked against them. Can Devon and Chiamaka stop Aces before things become incredibly deadly?

With heart-pounding suspense and relevant social commentary comes a high-octane thriller from debut author Faridah b k - y m d .

A Macmillan Audio production from Feiwel & Friends

   Two Stars
Two high school students are targeted in a campaign apparently aimed at derailing their high school achievements before they apply to colleges, police said Wednesday. They must figure out who is targeting them and why before their futures are shattered, said Dr. Julie Gerberding of the National Institutes of Health. I really wanted it, Tunick said. If I had known then what I know now, I probably would have bought a house, Mr. Ridgeway said. He was really annoying and I would have loved to have seen him on TV. None of the roommates was dynamic enough to make people stand out. It was mostly predictable, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It would have been cool to see from her point of view, Elizabeth said.
   Packs a Punch!
So I don't know how I can review this because I am so, so, so impressed with everything about this novel, Mary Elizabeth. Her dream was to become a doctor, but Faridah said she couldn't afford it. In her note, she says she's been working on this "pretty much all of my college career." The fact is, my mind is blown. I was too busy drinking and making bad decisions in college to even think about writing a novel, he said. It's got racism, classism, homophobia, gaslighting - all of the things that can be such a trigger- and that was incredibly palpable.
   Great YA Thriller
This book shocked me with surprisingly deep representation of black teens in a PWI who are trying to make their way to success in two different ways, Black Lives Matter organizer Janet Floyd said. Once their secrets are starting to be revealed, we see them try to hold on to each other's fragile futures. There were depictions of different sexualities, socioeconomic statuses and how those can change the choices we make through our lives. This book was frustrating to no end, but I needed to know what was going to happen next. It's a great product, and I recommend it to anyone.
   Social Eugenics
We're still waiting for the judge's call, Beckham said. The book is a bit of a Pretty Little Liars sequel, a bit of a Gossip Girl with a big ol swirl of racism and dastardly plans to ruin black youth. The level of deceit involved in this case is truly exceptional. The story centers around the two best friends, who attend a private school in the Hamptons. She has a boyfriend, a job and a dream of becoming a doctor. He has a dream of being a professional musician and making music his life. At first, they're confused about who could possibly have a personal vendetta against both of them. Realizing they are dealing with a criminal, the team decides to try and catch Aces in the act. Netgalley has also sent over 600 copies of the book "Ace of Spades" to Amazon. com.
