A food-for-thought dystopian with a strong feminist message. -Kirkus Reviews It's time to fight back in this second novel in the thrilling, subversive near future series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young about a girls-only private high school that is far more than it appears to be. Make me a girl with a razor heart... It's been weeks since Mena and the other girls of Innovations Academy escaped their elite boarding school. Although traumatized by the violence and experimentations that occurred there, Mena quickly discovers that the outside world can be just as unwelcoming and cruel. With no one else to turn to, the girls only have each other-and the revenge-fueled desire to shut down the corporation that imprisoned them. The girls enroll in Ridgeview Prep, a private school with suspect connections to Innovations, to identify the son of an investor and take down the corporation from the inside. But with pressure from Leandra, who revealed herself to be a double-agent, and Winston Weeks, an academy investor gone rogue, Mena wonders if she and her friends are simply trading one form of control for another. Not to mention the woman who is quite literally invading Mena's thoughts-a woman with extreme ideas that both frighten and intrigue Mena. And as the girls fight for freedom from their past-and freedom for the girls still at Innovations-they must also face new questions about their existence...and what it means to be girls with razor hearts.

And just as they start to build a new love, they hear about the Adjustment-a new therapy that implants memories from a donor. Despite the risks, Tatum and Weston agree to go through the process.

And as the truth of their life together becomes clear, Tatum will have to decide if she loves Weston enough to let him go, or to continue to live the lie they'd build together.
