James was the guy no one noticed - another 15-year-old living in a small town. So when he gets into the American Science and Mathematics Academy (or ASMA), a public boarding school, James decides that it’s time to leave the past behind. In a student body made up of nerds and geeks, being cool is easy. All it takes is a few harmless lies to invent the new James: rebel, punk, street fighter. Everyone’s impressed - except for the beautiful Ellie Frost.

Publisher's Summary

James was the guy no one noticed - another 15-year-old living in a small town. So when he gets into the American Science and Mathematics Academy (or ASMA), a public boarding school, James decides that it’s time to leave the past behind.

In a student body made up of nerds and geeks, being cool is easy. All it takes is a few harmless lies to invent the new James: rebel, punk, street fighter. Everyone’s impressed - except for the beautiful Ellie Frost, whose icy demeanor holds an inexplicable attraction for James, and the mysterious ghost44, an IM presence who sees right through his new identity.

But James is riding high - playing pranks and hooking up with the luscious Jessica Keen. Things seem perfect until he begins having strange dreams of a dark city haunted by demons. As the line between dreams and reality blurs, James comes to discover the secret - and consequence - of lying.

    "Pro"

    I have a pro this book agenda. It was excellent.
    There was some over the top stuff in it and the symbolism was a bit thick, but it's directed at teenagers, and people often underestimate their ability to understand the meaning of things.
    Despite that, the story was interesting, the characters were fun, and the writing was quite good. I am becoming a big fan of authors who use IMing in their writing. Done well it can be really effective. Of course, done wrong it can just be horrible. It's done right here, and it moves the story along and makes some interesting points.
    The narration is excellent too. I've read this narrator in other things, and I always enjoy him. He is just consistantly good at capturing tone and humor that might get missed with another narrator.
    Overall, definately worth the credit.
