Sang Sorenson’s abusive mother is secure in a hospital, and her father has vanished to a new family of his own, leaving Sang and her sister to fend for themselves. Sang is hanging by a thread, and her only hope is a group of boys she feels she barely knows.
She’s never really alone. The Academy team has stepped in, promising to protect and care for Sang. Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North take over, showing Sang they can be depended on for anything. But just because the parents are away, doesn’t mean Sang’s life has become any easier.
The newfound freedom will have a higher price than any of them had imagined.
Principal Hendricks now wants to use Sang to exploit Academy secrets. Mr. McCoy has his own dark plans for her. Enemies are closing in. Sang will need to learn to believe in the boys, and the boys will need to learn to trust her if they want to survive their rivals.
And each other.

MINOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT:
I really liked this book and this series. It is so hilarious while also having some really dark and hard moments. The characters are so great and their relationships with each other make me so jealous. Sang is going through a really tough time in her life and she really needs someone to be there for her. Luckily for her, she has Silas, Kota, North, Victor, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke, Dr. Green, and Mr. Blackbourne. They are all there for her when she needs them and each of them care about her so much. I can feel it through the writing how much they care about her.
Sang sometimes gets on my nerves with how she holds everything in and never really speaks up, but I can’t really blame her with the upbringing she had. There was a point in this book where the boys were cleaning up the shed in her front yard and she wouldn’t say that she wanted a simple and calm day with them and with no work involved. She just let it go because she thought they would think of her as a nuisance if she did. Later, she finally exploded and I WAS SO PROUD OF HER! She finally said what she was feeling and I was so happy. Hopefully, she will do it more in the future and trust the boys not to run away if she shows her true feelings.
I have to admit my favorite parts of the books are the ends. The ~A~ sections where it is through one of the boys point of views are just amazing and give me everything I want. I can’t wait to see what happens after the revelation Mr. Anderson revealed at the end. It should certainly push things in the direction I am ready for it to go the next book. I really am starting to fall for this series and I can’t wait for the next installment.
