Double, double, toil, and trouble! The quest for high-school royalty can turn deadly when teen ambition outstrips reason. Skye Kingston is a shy shutterbug who prefers observing life from behind her camera lens. She doesn't know she's stunning, and comes off the sidelines only when she's forced to by the terrifying events of one treacherous school year in Alaska. A boy named Duncan is dead, and his death may or may not be an accident. Skye's three new best friends are eerily able to foretell the future, and cheerleader Beth might be more than a social climber--she quite probably is a sociopath. Then there's Skye's growing attraction to the school hottie, Craig, The Boy Who Would Be Prom King. But their time is crossed by fate. There's already been one death, and who can say if it's only the first? As Skye falls for Craig, she also slowly realizes that he is caught in the crosshairs of a deadly plot. Can she save Craig and herself from a murderous fate? Exposure is not only a modern take on the classic Macbeth , it's proof that nothing has changed since Shakespeare riffed on the subject nearly half a millennium ago: the quest for power can lead to bloodstained hands.

" Exposure is an intelligent, poignant, and riveting mashup of Shakespearean tragedy and high-school politics, which, as it turns out, have a lot in common." ~Daria Snadowsky, author of Anatomy of a Boyfriend and Anatomy of a Single Girl

First things first....don't judge a book by its cover. Yes, I too, wasn't exactly captivated by the cover....but I decided to give it a chance. And it turned out to be pretty good, believe it or not! This book is a modern version of Macbeth. even though I have never laid my eyes on the book Macbeth it was still great! this book had an enormous amount of awesome vocabulary so be sure to have a dictionary at your side (like me).

She started rubbing furiously at the wool and leather coat with her bare hands until they were raw and chafed. "It won't come clean...He's dead and buried,so why is he still here? Why is the spot still here?"
