Things don’t usually come to a screeching halt at the RAT, also known as
Ridgewood Arts & Technical School, Ridgewood City’s most prestigious
progressive institution. But that’s what happens when Headmistress Hardaway
interrupts class and announces, “A scandal has rocked the fundraising
committee!” Everyone is a suspect and Hunter Jackson, student council
special investigator, vows to root out the student who’s heartless enough to
steal donation money. He’s not alone. Ridgewood Roar news editor, Anthony
Ravello, and the rogue, indie-press pioneer, Liberty Lennon, plan to do some
journalistic digging of their own in a race against each other to scoop the
truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to their faithful
readers…or at least their versions of it. With the truth getting murkier by
the day, students at the RAT gobble up news bytes and wash them down with
locker-side gossip as they try to unmask the classmate responsible for the
missing funds.
