An unruly boy fighting to overthrow it.
Only one of them can win… But will they both lose their hearts?
“Captivating and impossible to put down, McAloon’s twisted but beautiful world comes alive on the page.” (Publisher Weekly’s BookLife Prize, quarter-finalist 2018)
After her first night at the infamous Choice Club, 18-year-old Alice gets swept up in the glitzy haze of freedom and in the smoldering gaze of one of the club’s Top Choice boys: Tag MacPhail. He’s meant to be a pretty distraction at a time when everything else in girls’ lives is complicated. Until Alice starts to notice there might be more to Tag than just good looks and charm.
Until she starts to suspect that he might be dangerous.
Alice believes Tag is part of a secret rebel group fighting to overturn the girl-power regime her ancestors worked so hard to put in place. And now she’s determined to prove that her suspicions are right and bring Tag and the other insurgents to justice… because this is her chance to finally prove herself worthy of her family name. And if there’s one thing she’s learned growing up in the world of politics, it’s to keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
Only Alice didn’t count on the fact that getting closer to Tag would upend everything she thought she knew.
As alliances blur, conspiracies erupt, and violence escalates, Alice is forced to make the toughest decision of her life: is she willing to betray everything she was raised to protect, for a boy she’s not even sure she can trust?
Step through the shimmering doors of the Choice Club, into a world that will dazzle you one moment, shock you the next, and enthrall you throughout.
