The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .
Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.
As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.
Now Phoebe’s lessons about Shaper’s enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star’s glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe’s caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn’t know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself—and her secret power—to get to the truth and to stay alive.
Phoebe Pope is starting school at the Campus Below where up until recently her application hadn’t been sent in. With the death of her father she and her grandfather get her enrolled in school so she can do what her father did. There she meets the Hollywood Actor Colten Chase who seems to be more than he appears and he has eyes for Phoebe. There are four Hypa’s who are in danger from the Vigo, Phoebe is one of them.
While I was reading this parts of it felt like reading Harry Potter but so much better. Phoebe seems to have so much going on especially with the hottie Colten. He is mysterious and sends her hearts fluttering. We also meet her friends Hayley, her roommate Cyn. Who both know all things about Colten atleast according to the tabloids. When Phoebe learns about Colten and what he is she keeps his secret.
I enjoyed reading this book it was great on so many levels, with the mystery of certain characters, adventure, romance, and a whole different world existing in our normal world. Definitely a great up and coming author!
