Classmates Erica Yurgen and Alison Ashley vie with each other to become the undisputed star of their class.

Publisher Description

'Utter loathing and hatred,' I said. 'I wouldn't even be on the same bus as you ...If I could have caught a virus in time.' Erica Yurken knew she was destined for great things. Never in any doubt about her own genius, she felt superior to everyone at notorious Barringa East ...that is, until Alison Ashley turned up.
