The Academy
Where things are not always as they seem…

My name is Kris Jameson and I’m a student at the Royal Academy. I’m at the top of all my classes, what they call a “model student.” There’s only one problem—the Academy is an all boys school and I’m a girl.

It started as a prank when I took my brother’s place. But things got complicated when I caught Broward, the school bully, in a compromising position. They got even worse when I was assigned my roommate—the handsome but enigmatic North who saved me several times from the bully’s attacks.

Now the consequences of my deception are coming back to haunt me. The penalty for fraud at this exclusive school is much worse than simple expulsion—I could lose a hand. Worse, so could my beloved brother.

With so much at stake, it’s imperative that I keep my secret safe. And the person I’m closest to, North, is the one I have to be most wary of.
The trouble is, I think I’m falling in love with him…
This is a unique gender bender story. Reminds me alot of 'Hana Kimi'. The idea was the same. Some scenes are like it was the OST itself although the plot was different. But for the over all, the book is really good leaving you wanting for more.

And seriously?! What is Browards problem in here? I really wanted to smack his face every time he bully Kris. I mean, it's actually a worst case of bullying. *Grrrr*

Anyway, I think the best thing about this book is about "woman empowerment". It was actually during the early days that woman are unequally treated compared to Man. But in this book, I felt the feminist inside me, Kris's courage is what I really admire the most. 

This book is definitely for young adults out there. (^-^) Great book!
