Sixteen-year-old Nadia Riley is delighted to earn a spot at an elite, government-funded boarding school. Nothing sounds better than leaving behind her fraught relationship with her ex-boyfriend and moving to faraway Arizona for a spot at Desert Mountain Academy.  But the Academy is more than Nadia bargained for: it’s a covert CIA program training high-achieving students for the Black-Ops.

Nadia struggles to keep up in her new classes while gaining the trust of her assigned teammates. Things get worse when news leaks that there is a double agent on campus, and someone is framing Nadia.  Nadia discovers dark secrets about her fellow teammates and learns one of them is the deserter.
