This stunning novel by E.R. Frank explores what happens when the truth is worse than the rumor.

Twelve-year-old Alex loves her small alternative school. She hangs out with her best friend, Tim, every day, and Simon is the coolest teacher—he’s even starting a soccer team just for them. And then Stacey comes to town. With her tongue ring and air of confidence, Stacey immediately shakes things up in the classroom. Alex is drawn to her at first, but when Stacey starts rumors that something is going on between Alex and Simon, trouble brews. As the class and Tim begin to believe Stacey’s rumors, Alex starts to doubt what is really true herself.

This explosive tale about school politics, relationships, and the frictional power of suggestion is “sure to spark heated discussions” (SLJ, starred review).
