The Rumor Game

1 March, 2022

Book cover is a black and white image of a young woman sitting on a stool. She's wearing a striped shirt and cut off jeans. She's holding a phone out in front of her. There are pieces of bright yellow tape across parts of the image. One piece covers her face. There are word balloons down each side of the cover with comments like you see in instant messages. Here are a few of the comments. New babe alert. Don't start drama. It was just a little fun. Somebody needs to come clean and I don't even know who this girl is anymore.The Rumor Game by Dhonielle Clayton, Sona Charaipotra

0All it takes is one spark to start a blaze.

At Foxham Prep, a posh private school for the children of DC’s elite, a single rumor has the power to ruin a life.

Nobody knows that better than Bryn. She used to have it all—the perfect boyfriend, a bright future in politics, and even popularity, thanks to her best friend, cheer captain Cora. Then one mistake sparked a scandal that burned it all to the ground.

Now it’s the start of a new school year and the spotlight has shifted: It’s geeky Georgie, newly hot after a summer makeover, whose name is on everyone’s lips. When a rumor ignites, Georgie rockets up the school’s social hierarchy, pitting her and Cora against each other. It grants her Foxham stardom . . . but it also makes her a target.

As the rumors grow and morph, blazing like wildfire through the school’s social media, all three girls’ lives begin to unravel. But one person close to the drama has the power to stop the gossip in its tracks. The question is—do they even want to?
