High school is a terrible place for a teen assassin.
Jessie Tacket secretly prepares for an unavoidable battle with the general who trained her as an assassin and wants her back. However, her guardian, Detective Victoria Tacket, has other goals for Jessie and assigns her time-consuming, civilian tasks in hopes of transforming her into a normal teen.
Despite Jessie’s strong preference to minimize social contact and the number of people who might get hurt, she finds herself visiting high schools to pacify Vick. Jessie merges civilian and military lifestyles by collecting intel on the people in Vick’s life—and discovers not everyone is who they pretend to be.
High school is the perfect place for teen assimilation.
Detective Vick Tacket is determined to keep Jessie’s supernatural abilities and murky past a secret by pushing her to become a typical teen. She assigns Jessie a list of tasks to force social interaction and to keep her away from a government agent interested in recruiting her. Despite her plan, Jessie returns to old habits and uncovers evidence of espionage from a person Vick considered a friend.
The line between friends and enemies blurs as Jessie and Vick struggle to determine who they can trust. With the general hunting Jessie, a wrong choice could lead to deadly consequences.
