What it's about: Politics may have changed some since this thriller that's oh-so-perfect for Scandal fans released five years ago, but Barnes's ability to bring on the twists you'll never see coming is timeless. (For more proof, check out Little White Lies and the upcoming The Inheritance Games.) Tess is new to both DC and living with her sister, Ivy, but she acclimates fast when it turns out she's got the same kind of "fixer" skills that've made her sister indispensable in American politics. Of course, Tess isn't quite operating on the same level, using her powers to help her classmates — but when their worlds collide in a grand conspiracy, they'll have to work together, even if it means revealing some secrets of their own.
