At an elite boarding school in the English countryside,
Nigerian cousins Iyanu and Kitan are thrown into the middle of
a schoolwide conspiracy when everyone's juicy secrets are released
"Burn Book style" the week before the annual Valentine's Day Ball...
Within the walls of Wodebury Hall, reputation is everything. But
aspiring photographer Iyanu is more comfortable observing things
safely from behind her camera.
For Iyanu's estranged cousin Kitan, life seems perfect. She has
money, beauty and friends like queen bee Heather. But as a Nigerian
girl in a school as white and insular as Wodebury, Kitan struggles
with the personal sacrifices needed to keep her place - and
the protection she gets - within the exclusive popular crowd.
Then, photos from Iyanu's camera are stolen and splashed across
the school - each with a juicy secret written on it. With everyone's
dirty laundry suddenly out in the open, the school explodes
in chaos, and the whispers accusing Iyanu of being the one behind
it all start to feel like deja vu.
Each girl is desperate to unravel the mystery of who stole the
photos and why. But exposing the truth will change them all forever.
