Trivia is Serious Business.
Paul Liston shouldn't be in this much trouble. He's seventeen years old with a great family and a 4.0 GPA, and best of all it's trivia season. For the two weeks surrounding his school's Trivia Master competition, the rules change. The geeks inherit the earth. Knowledge itself becomes power.
But it's not such a friendly little game. With the balance of power shifted, the knives come out among the nerd set. Sabotage, deception, betrayal - nothing is off the table in the scramble to the top. And Paul, king of the whiz kids and everyone's target, knows this more than most. His best friend wants to use him. His vengeance-obsessed rival is gunning for him. And even his "one true love" is ready to toss him off the mountain.
Paul never wanted to fight a war, but with his enemies multiplying daily, his only hope might be to sink into the gutter with them.
