COMING FROM SIMON PULSE SUMMER 2018

FOUR LETTER WORD

Eight friends. One game. A dozen regrets.

 

And a night that will ruin them all.

 

Chloe Sanders has wasted the better part of her junior year watching her best friend Eve turn away from her for the more interesting and popular Holly Reed. Living with her grandparents because her parents are currently serving as Peace Corps volunteers, Chloe spends her days crushing on a dark-haired guy named Mateo, being mostly ignored by Eve and Holly, and wishing the cornfields of Iowa didn’t feel so incredibly lonely.

 

But shortly after spring break, a new girl transfers to Grinnell High—Chloe Donnelly. This Chloe is bold and arty and instantly placed on a pedestal of coolness by Eve and Holly. Now suddenly everyone is referring to Chloe Sanders as “Other Chloe” and her social status plummets even more.

 

Until Chloe Donnelly introduces all her friends to Gestapo: a girls vs. guys Capture the Flag type of game that only has one rule—obtain information by any means necessary. All the warning bells are going off in Other Chloe’s head about the game, but she’s not about to commit social suicide by saying no to playing.

 

Turns out Gestapo is more complicated than Other Chloe thinks. Chloe Donnelly hates to lose. She's got power over everyone—secrets she’s exploiting—and she likes to yank their strings. Only soft-spoken Mateo is sick of it, and when the game turns nasty, he chooses Other Chloe to help him expose everything Chloe Donnelly has done. But neither realize just how much the truth could cost them in the end.
