Sang Sorenson used to be the invisible girl in class. As a new student to Ashley Waters High School, Sang hopes that her new friends will be the change she’s been craving and will make fitting in a breeze.
But Academy students aren’t there to take it easy. The high school is overcrowded and rife with violence. When fights begin, Sang will uncover the true reason the boys traded in their private school life for a public one. 
This year, Sang will no longer be invisible. This year, Sang is a target.
The principal and vice principal are hot to take Sang down, and her own mother is determined to entrap Sang forever in her belief that the safest place to be is in the shadows. Despite this, Nathan, Luke, Kota, North, Silas, Victor, and Gabriel will discover Sang’s unyielding loyalty.
And they will sorely need it.
The Academy, supremely influential.

Wow. All reserves I had about the last and first book have disappeared. I was worried about the fast pace of the characters relationships developing but now after reading this second book, I could not imagine it any other way. 
It is so addicting and frustrating to read because, as the reader, we are in the dark about most of the reasons the boys have for being at the school. The Academy is a mystery, and without giving anything away, the end of the book, I’d say the last chapter or so, we start to learn more. But then it ended and I was like AHHHHH. 
Also at the end of the book, we start to learn more about Sang’s family life, well what she has of one. Things are said that can be used to start to piece together the mysterious ways of her mother. I do not want to ruin anything by saying what exactly, but basically it makes life make sense. 
I am IN LOVE with the amount of sexy boys in this. I can’t even handle it really. And Sang ends up making MORE male friends at school. I mean really, save some for the rest of the school! Really though, it makes for such a good and interesting and unique plot line. They all act as if they like her, and are all protective and she reciprocates the affections. I can’t help but loving Silas, more than North who she seems keen on. But will there be a love story here as well, maybe a love octagon? 
I am beginning to wonder, in extreme quantities, who these boys are. They are a team, a family of sorts, but what does that have to do with the academy? So honestly, for like half of this book I considered that this was going to turn into a paranormal type book, but I am not so sure of that any more. I also considered that they were ninjas and well, that’s the only explanation I can come up with. ninja school. This is why I need to read the next book ASAP.
