When the Tiger Smiles
July 09, 2011
By the time 16-year-old Emma Riley realizes her life is in peril, she's at the bottom of a canyon 2000 miles from home. Like any self-respecting overachiever, Emma is thrilled when she’s invited to attend a small private school a few weeks into her junior year. She was recently dumped by her boyfriend (for her ex-best friend) and she's ready for a change. However, the recruiter from Desert Mountain Academy fails to mention one pertinent detail: her new school is a training facility for future intelligence operatives. She's briefed on arrival and, despite the intimidating curriculum, she's determined to make the most of her opportunity. But when the students learn that a double agent has infiltrated the school, her situation takes a deadly turn. As it turns out, the girl Emma replaced didn’t die in a car accident—she was murdered. The administration quietly suspects Emma —she is the new transfer. Evidence against her begins to accumulate, and her gorgeous new boyfriend can't ignore it forever. Emma's being framed, and she’s desperate to clear her name. Meanwhile, the real double agent will stop at nothing to protect his or her identity—including an attempt on Emma’s life.
