The Graduates

All Rights Reserved ©


How far would you go to graduate high school? For four students at Comperi Prep, the answer is too far. When Laura Diaz learns she's not going to graduate because her Criminology teacher acts like a tyrant, she's devastated. She's about to lose her entire future, including a full-ride scholarship to Yale. She's not the only one being held back. Mr. Young is failing three other students: the charming Jacob Scott, Terry Hayes, and Amelia Stewart. Rather than watch their futures crumble, the four students hatch a plan: they'll kidnap their teacher and blackmail him into letting them all graduate. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned. What started out as a simple kidnapping twists into something much darker. When this is over, they might be graduates, but they could also be murderers.
