In a twisted game of truth and lies, Yuki Kobayashi schemes to win the heart of her academic rival, Rhett Tudor, and the college scholarship with it. But if he sees through her deception, it's game over.
Yuki Kobayashi is the pretty, popular girl at school who's always one wrong move away from having her crystal castle in the sky come crashing down. If her wealthy classmates find out that her parents died bankrupt, Yuki's reputation at Zenith High will be shredded to tatters. With lies as her foundation, Yuki is determined to make it through the next three years with her past safely buried and her future secure.
When Era Wang, the queen of Zenith, offers a college scholarship and the coveted presidency of her club as the prizes for winning a simple game, it's an opportunity Yuki can't refuse. But sparks fly when Rhett Tudor, her childhood friend turned enemy threatens to defeat her in the game and expose her web of lies. As the lines between truth and fiction blur and the distance closes between her and Rhett, Yuki must decide whether the end justifies the means, even if she'll lose her only true friend and his trust again--this time forever.
