"Slick, breezy and highly stylized...a fast-moving and suspenseful tale."
-- Kirkus Reviews

Adam is a loser, and he's not okay with it. But starting as a junior in a new high school seems like exactly the right time...to change things. What will it take for him to become the most popular person at Nixon Collegiate?

Adam searches for the A-listers' weak spots, and strikes gold when he gets Sara Bryant to pay her for doing her physics homework. One part nerd, two parts badass, Adam ditches his legit job and turns to full-time cheating. His clients? All the Nixon gods and goddesses.

But soon his homework business becomes a booze business, which becomes a fake ID business. Adam has the hookup for EVERYTHING. His popularity soars as he unlocks high school achievements left and right, from his first kiss to his first rebound hookup.

But for Adam, the dozens of girls and limitless influence are not enough. Something else is haunting him, driving him to keep climbing. But how far is too far?

Owen Matthews's irreverent, fast-paced YA debut asks: What does it really take to make it to the top of the high school heap?
