When Kara takes anew underground drug to help her ace the SATs, she doesn’t expect to get a text with mysterious instructions from an unknown sender.

Glitter by Aprilynne Pike
Published October 25, 2016 by Random House Books for Young Readers
Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette.
Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century—with the added bonus of technology. The palace has every indulgence, but for Danica—who witnesses an act of murder by the young king and who’s mother blackmails him into making Danica queen—the palace is a prison. She has six months before her marriage to escape. Her ticket out? Selling Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. But everything is put in jeopardy when she falls for the wrong man.
