When an anonymous texter “Aces” begins to share deep secrets about the students at Niveus Private Academy, Devon and Chiamaka notice that they are the only two Black students in the whole school and the ones being targeted by Aces.

Like a mixture of ‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘Get Out’, the story is fast-paced and binge-worthy. Devon and Chi have to battle against racism and homophobia; and they soon discover the horrible lies of their school. Find it here!
