This novel wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for my dear friend Katrina, who helped produce this mamma-jamma, so for that (and many other things), I thank her dearly. If you’re interested in learning more, you can hop over here to check out the physical copy, or over here to check it on Kindle.
Need a little more about the story to wet your whistle? Well, then, read on!
KILL THE FRESHMAN SYNOPSIS:
In junior high Vi may have been a nerdy outcast, but now that she’s a freshman, she’s going to get popular or die trying. Literally.
At the Gracewood Academy of Queens and Patriarchs, ancient magical mumbo-jumbo gives superhuman powers to students willing to take the ID cards (and lives) of their classmates. Underclassmen are the unwilling prey in this jungle, only safe from each other, and in certain parts of the school.
When Vi nearly dies courtesy of some sophomores, her motor mouth lands her a friendship with Allison Meadows, Gracewood’s apex senior, and into a student election that’s like The Hunger Games with gossip. Everyone is a target during the election— the weirdos in journalism (who Vi secretly kinda likes), Allison (who Vi secretly kinda fears), and even Vi herself (who Vi secretly kinda loathes). To save her newfound friends, this fast-talking freshman will risk everything she cares about most: being popular, being herself, and being alive (in that order).
