Forget charm school, Vale Hall is an elite prep academy that recruits special children who have a knack, not for getting good grades, but for perfecting the art of deception. Attending the school appeals a great deal to Brynn Hilder, who spent all summer scamming rich kids out of their sizable allowance. In short, she’s the perfect candidate for Vale Hall. But the more she learns about Vale the more suspicious she grows that the school’s up to no good. The Deceivers, the first book in this young adult action-paced trilogy from YA author Kristen Simmons is “brilliantly plotted, tightly paced, and intensely smart.” – Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author.
