“If you’ve ever wanted to attend an elite boarding school, go to a decadent Midwinter’s Eve party, or choose between a host of attractive boys vying for your attention, here’s your chance to live the experience vicariously. That’s right—it’s a choose your own adventure for teens! Clark delivers a fast-paced, fun read that allows kids to decide how one wild evening will turn out. Readers can choose whether they want a John Green–esque romance or dive straight into a Gossip Girl–style party, hopping from one handsome guy to the next. Clark neatly resolves every version of the plot, but many of the events leading up to the climactic ending are in the reader’s hands. This one’s fresh and unique, with wide-ranging appeal. After all, if you don’t like the story, you change it. Grades 7-10.”Booklist

“Clark cleverly arranges the story so that no matter what you choose, you are destined to have a wild year.”Booklist
