Title: The Hit List
Author: Nikki Urang
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Date of Publication: November 11, 2014
The Los Angeles Conservatory for the Arts is supposed to be a new beginning for Sadie Bryant. Moving across the country is exactly what she needs to escape the gossip surrounding her injury, the devastating betrayal of her ex-partner, and to rebuild her career as a solo dancer.When the school announces that the annual Fall Showcase, a performance that secures a spot studying in London, will now require each dancer to have a partner, Sadie’s fresh start is a nightmare. Now she has to dance with Luke Morrison, the school womanizer with a big ego. Sadie doesn’t know how to trust Luke enough to dance with him after her last partner left her broken, but Luke is determined to change that.Then, The Hit List comes out. A game of sexual conquest where guys get points for all the girls they hook up with—and it seems like every guy at the school is playing.The girl worth the most points? Sadie.
“What’s this Hit List thing?” I ask, holding my phone out for them to see the email.
I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before I decided to come to The Conservatory. Three thousand miles means a whole lot less if I have to put up with a sex game all year. It’s too late to transfer somewhere else. No one will have any openings at the beginning of the semester.
Brielle grabs my phone and holds it closer to her face to read the screen. “What are you talking about?”
Adam rolls his eyes. “Oh, that’s like some urban legend. It’s not actually real.”
Someone’s done an awesome job at breathing life into this urban legend. “Looks real to me.” I cross my arms.
Brielle hands my phone back to me. “Where did you find this?”
I drop my phone on the bed and sit up to lean against the wall. “It’s on The Conservatory blog.”
She glares at me and pushes the power button on her laptop. A few clicks later, and the blog post is on her screen.
“What the hell? I seriously thought it was just a rumor last year.” Brielle scrolls through the post.
Adam leans over Brielle’s shoulder. “I liked this blog, too. The gossip was fantastic.”
Brielle swivels in her chair. Her brown curls fly through the air at the movement and smack her in the face. She pulls at a few strands stuck to her lip gloss. “Is that all you ever pay attention to? There was some good stuff on there. And now some psycho with a sex addiction has taken it over.”
