Senior year is cooling down, student scandals are heating up, and in sexy South Beach, one teen's wicked dirty trouble is another teen's good clean fun. Until the last killer party becomes exactly that -- a party that kills.
Everyone wants to be just like them: Vanity, the gorgeous celebutante; Dante, the hip-hop dreamer; Max, the second-generation Hollywood bad boy; Christina, the just-out-of-the-closet Latina; and Pippa, the British hottie. They're the fabulous five of the Miami Academy for Performing Arts, and they've got everything and more. But for the unluckiest one of all, that includes a violent death at seventeen...on the night before graduation.
Hot romance, dangerous games, platinum dreams, and deadly choices. For some people, it's an impossible life. For Miami's most infamous clique, it's just another day at the beach...and for one of them, it's going to be the last.
From the book
He was the son of Hollywood's hottest action star, Miami's most celebrated party promoter, and, at seventeen, already had a list of sexual conquests approaching that triple-digit figure with a one and two zeros. But right now he was just an older brother, praying for God to spare the life of his baby sister.
A soft touch grazed his arm. "I'm going to get a cup of coffee. Can I get you some?"
Max looked at Bethany with a savage intensity. She was a girl he'd met at the Tar Beach rooftop party practically five minutes ago. They were supposed to be in his hotel suite having sex, not in a hospital lobby sweating out life-or-death news.
"I don't need coffee, bitch. I just need to know that my sister's going to make it." And then Max sank down into a chair and began nervously chewing on the nail of his index finger.
For a long moment, Bethany just stood there, speechless, her face a masterpiece of hurt and embarrassment.
Max ignored her.
Finally, she walked away.
He would never see her again. Like he gave a shit. Bethany was just some party skank he wanted to nail. And suddenly she wanted an upgrade to instant girlfriend who provides emotional support in a moment of crisis? Thanks, but no thanks, baby.
Once more, Max put his Sidekick II to work calling his friends -- Vanity, Dante, Pippa, and Christina. And once again, not one of them answered.
Max was alone. He was scared as hell, too. "Come on, Sho," he murmured. "Don't go out like this. That would make me an orphan."
A young Asian woman in surgical scrubs approached, her expression severe and disapproving. "You brought in Shoshanna Biaggi?"
Max stood quickly, nodding as he took in the badge that announced her as Dr. Elizabeth Tang. "I'm her brother. Is she -- "
"Are you the one who gave her the drugs?"
"N-no...of course not," Max stammered.
"So -- what?" Dr. Tang countered in a caustic tone. "You just stood there and watched her take them?"
Max knew that his expression was almost pleading. "No, like I told the paramedics...she was hanging with this guy who makes his own chem shit. He swears he didn't give her anything, but I know he's lying -- "
Dr. Tang raised an impatient hand to silence him. "She was given -- or rather she took -- something. At this point, my best guess is a dangerously high dose of PCP, but it'll take a few days for the toxicology report to come back. And it might not reveal much."
"How is she?" Max asked.
Dr. Tang betrayed no emotion. "Your sister's in a coma." One beat. "I suggest you call your parents. They need to get here as soon as possible."
Max's mind got stuck on the last bit. "Are you saying she's going to die?" The question croaked out faintly, no more than a whisper.
"The next few hours are critical," Dr. Tang said gravely. "And it could go either way. So like I said -- call your parents."
Max watched her disappear, struggling to maintain his composure as he glanced around. He hated the democracy of hospital emergency rooms -- rich, poor, gorgeous, ugly, brilliant, uneducated. The same care and effort went into saving all of them. For once, all of his Hollywood name dropping and trust-fund power didn't mean a goddamn thing.
The guilt began to gnaw away at him like a flesh-eating virus. If only he...
