Among the Goldens at Emory high, Lilah Covington is Platinum - the hottest of the hot. She's popular, beautiful, and much smarter than she looks. But most importantly to Lilah, she's in complete control of her own destiny - if only someone would tell that to the mysterious ghost boy roaming the halls. Ever since Lissy and Lexie James arrived in town, Lilah's perfect world has been coming unhinged. No-one else can see the ghost who's trailing her around campus, and - forget the rumour mill - her memories have her more sidetracked than any gossip could. It looks as if the James family legacy of supernatural sight might be contagious. And to make matters worse, mutiny is brewing among the Goldens, and if Lilah isn't careful, she may just lose her top-tier boyfriend to her second-in-command. Lilah knows the rules better than anyone, but between her newfound visions, an absolutely fatal attraction to a boy who isn't real, and the threat of a supernatural enemy with a sting deadlier than any Queen Bee, it's going to take everything Lilah has to stay on top at Emory. And to prove once and for all that those who make the rules are the only ones who can break them.

US Kirkus Review »
At Emory High, each student's status as a popular Golden or Non- (Golden) is crucial, except in the case of Lilah Covington, whose knockout combination of beauty, confidence, manipulative scheming and popularity elevates her to platinum status. However, when Lilah begins experiencing haunting visions that shake her trademark sense of control, she fears that her status might be slipping. Determined to free herself of the visions, which feature grisly scenes from the past and a mysterious male spirit bent on murder, she traces them to the supernatural Lissy and Lexie James, closely tying this text to Barnes's Golden (2006). With the help of the James sisters, the three girls use their supernatural powers to solve a mystery that is decades old. Although not absolutely necessary, previous knowledge of Golden would be helpful for understanding the events leading to Lilah's visions, as they're only partially addressed here. Fast-paced fun.
