To be honest, it took me about two or three times to get the first part of the blurb. Besides, it’s a bit too vague for my liking. Are you being metaphorical and talking about a mean girl climbing society? Or is it literal and are you talking about a fantastic witch? Other than that, I do appreciate the play on words.
Of Attraction & Its Collateral Damage
and though you wouldn’t be interested, it’s a funny story like that.
Or so one would think if it involves Alexander Raines after he finally gets the opportunity to travel at 17 for two months without his overprotective parents. The upside: he’s going with Xiomara, his beautiful all-time-inseparable best friend with personality to spare. The downside: he has to go with his whole class of rich kids to Frankfurt, Germany to learn the language. All because of his prestigious Boston academy’s Summer student program for traveling abroad before Senior year.
Innocent as only he can get, Alexander hasn’t yet been with anyone (although the a social façade he’s built suggests otherwise). But when unknown feelings blossom as the days go by, he is left to wonder what they mean, or even who it is that’s causing them in the first place. Maybe it’s Xiomara, who up until now has been the girl who he’s always loved as a sister and partner in crime. Or maybe it could be his new roommate Gene; the annoyingly charming and risk-seeking latest addition to Mapleton Academy.
Being away from home and in the center of the drama, he’s certain that something will happen that will ensue with ultimate personal revelations. All while hell breaks loose with European cities as a backdrop, what with the games of jealousy, petty drama, teenage angst, snob gossip and all. Because when it comes to teenage attraction, it’s all fun and games till someone gets hurt.
Or goes missing.
