When prom queen Jasmine Fairchild is blackmailed for money in exchange for salacious photos taken from her stolen cell, she turns to the one person she can trust to help her out: her ex-boyfriend Chance Harper. Though only a junior in high school, Chance already knows a thing or two about tragedy. Two years ago, after it was revealed he was having an affair, his father took his own life. Chance’s mother, unable to cope, disappeared, leaving Chance to be raised by his aunt and uncle. Now Chance does everything on his own: homework, lunches, his after-school job, everything. Which is okay. He’s come to accept this is how his life will be. Which is why Chance is caught off guard when Jasmine approaches him for help. With the small desire to reunite with his ex, and possibly rejoin the school elite, Chance agrees to help. Soon he’s prying into the social strata of his fellow students, breaking into lockers and perusing the principal’s personal student files in search for a culprit. And it isn’t long before Chance begins to find out just how twisted high school life really is. Just as Chance thinks he has the blackmailer’s identity figured out his suspect turns up dead, and with Chance’s fingerprints all over the crime scene. Were his suspicions correct? Or is someone else behind Jasmine’s blackmailing scheme? And why? Chance had better figure it all out quickly, or else he’ll be spending the rest of his high school years in a fate worse than detention.
