They all thought they did a masterful job of keeping their secrets close to their chest. These stupid fools thought they were the high court of this kingdom, but they had no clue who was really pulling the strings. You might wonder to yourself, who would be that heartless to make them backstab their friends, expose other’s secrets, and lose their morals? You don’t need to know who I am, but you better remember my name, The Marked Queen.

Danielle, Andrew, Delilah, Aman, and Jasmine all are now faced with a mysterious villain whose one goal is to ruin each of their lives. They must protect their secrets at all cost, or they’ll be the next victim on Marked Day. They know what’s at stake, and they’ll stop at nothing to continue being: the rich spoiled girl, the normal teenager, the girl who isn’t banging the principal, the straight vlogger, and the girl who isn’t her dad’s punching bag. What happens when The Marked Queen changes up the game just in time for prom? Will each of our favorite puppets survive? Or are they willing to backstab each other just to keep up their personas? The only thing lost at this prom wasn’t going to be their virginity.

Sex, Lies, and High School Queens explores the major theme of self-acceptance. Can they learn to accept all their flaws or pray victim to The Marked Queen? Each chapter continues to fill your sweet tooth until the climactic moment at the prom where you get to have that final bite of the bitch cake you’ve been dying to consume.

EXCERPT:
Aman smiled when he saw his video hit two million views. He scrolled down and saw a comment that he wasn’t too thrilled about.

Congrats on your new video trending at number seven. Quick question, how much did that cost you? Oh, Aman, we know your daddy is paying for these views and subscribers. It’s rather pathetic since you’re doing it for his love and admiration. We hear that the camera adds ten pounds of bullshit to your personality. We know you love to fake it like you have happiness in your life. – The Marked Queen.

Aman locked his phone and threw it in the locker. This was supposed to be his moment, but the bitch was taking it away from him. He also knew a part of him hated that he was fighting with Calvin. The one person that he wanted to share this with, he couldn’t. He wanted to believe that Calvin had the strength for both of them, but he wasn’t sure their foundation was strong enough right now.

Aman, maybe you shouldn’t be pushing away the man that loves you, but you learned that trait from your father. You wanted to be the biggest YouTube sensation, but you needed to accept the truth. Your videos are fake, and you’re just another bullshit actor. The only problem was, what would happen to you once you were pulled off the stage? We thought tomatoes were more your style than roses. After all, your performance has been less than subpar at best.
