When Peter Smith's classmate snaps a picture of him during an early-morning workout at the track, Peter thinks he might be in trouble. When she tweets that photo-along with the caption, See the Pretty Boy Run, -Peter knows he's in trouble. But when snipers drop through the ceiling and take out his Chem teacher with a Bunsen burner, Peter's pretty sure his trouble just became a national emergency.

Because he's not really Peter Smith. He's Jake Morrow, former foster-kid turned CIA operative. After a massive screw up on his first mission, he's on a pity assignment, about a dozen hit lists and now, Twitter, apparently.

As #Prettyboy, of all freaking things.

His cover's blown, his school's under siege, and he knows what his superiors would say: get the hell out. But Jake won't run. He's on the trail of a hacker nearly as good as he is, a hacker working with a disgraced criminal network Jake helped expose, a hacker who's determined to hunt Jake down.

If Jake fails, #Prettyboy will become #Deadboy faster than you can say, Fifteen minutes of fame. Trapped in a high school with rabid killers and rabid fans, he'll need all his training and then some to save his job, his school and, oh yeah, his life.
