• This remains a Very Important Question:
What the fuck is going on with the male models' hair??
The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .
Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.
As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.
Now Phoebe’s lessons about Shaper’s enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star’s glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe’s caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn’t know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself—and her secret power—to get to the truth and to stay alive.
Phoebe held back a smile. Then, she said mockingly, “‘I’m a fan of your body—?”’
“Not another word about that,” Hayley said aghast, cutting her off. “Not one of my finest moments. I’ll admit that. But damn that boy for making my brain go all mush.”
“We’re done?” Phoebe asked, confused. “What about our last session?”
“We just had it,” Afua said. “One of the toughest fights you can find yourself in is the one that goes on in your head. And that can be detrimental to the one on the field.” When Phoebe stared at her uncomprehending, she added, “You need a clear mind for what you’re about to do tonight and that means understanding that the enemy isn’t you."
