Alena's life is a living hell. Since she arrived at a snobbish boarding school, she's been harassed every day by Philippa and the girls on the lacrosse team. But Alena's best friend Josephine is not going to accept that anymore. Not from the counselor or the principal, not from Philippa, and not from anyone else at that horrid school. If Alena does not fight back, then Josephine will take matters into her own hands. There's just one problem . . . Josephine has been dead for a year.
