David Ellison has always been told that he can do anything he sets his mind to, but when he sets his sights on Julliard rather than nearby Stanford University, David learns that "anything" doesn't include throwing away his private school education to study acting. He's determined to make his dream a reality, but as his Juilliard audition approaches, his school is thrown into chaos by a mysterious prankster known as The Artist, who is determined to sabotage the college aspirations of the school's highest achievers. Anyone who excels is a potential target-and David, the star of every play, could be next. From the author of the critically acclaimed The Brothers Torres comes an insightful novel about enduring the pressures of high school and beating the system.
