Fat, clumsy Simon Glass is a nerd and a loser who occupies the lowest rung on the high-school social ladder. Everyone picks on him - until Rob Haynes shows up. Rob, a transfer student with charisma to spare, immediately becomes the undisputed leader of the senior class. And he has plans for Simon.
Rob enlists the help of his crew - wealthy, intellectual Young; ladies' man Bob; and sweet, athletic Coop - in a mission: turn sniveling Simon from total freak to would-be prom king.
But as Simon rises to the top of the social ranks, he shows a new confidence and a devious side that power-hungry Rob did not anticipate. And when Simon uncovers a dangerous secret, events darken. The result is disquieting, bone-chilling - and brutal.
