For Ages: 14 and up
Love and lust are in the air at St. Cecilia’s. Alice and her lifelong best friend and crush, Tristan, are finally together, and anxious to bring their relationship to the next level. Meanwhile, Tally is scouting the perfect rebound to make her forget all about her doomed romance with Mr. Logan.

But with a strict new housemistress at the school, face time with the boys is severely limited (and heaven forbid the girls actually bond with each other). Will Alice and Tally be able to sneak away for one perfect night? Or are their plans for dangerous liaisons destined for disappointment?
