Seventeen-year-old Haruna Catherine Mitsukai has three goals:1. Be liked by everyone.
2. Graduate from Shady Glenn Academy (with Honours, of course).
3. Get accepted into UBC (along with Mani, the gorgeous, super-rich boyfriend)—and get out of Campbelton forever.
Ryu Debiru has only one: 1. Survive.
But some goals are difficult to achieve.
Especially when two teenagers who couldn’t be more different, couldn’t despise each other more are partnered with each other for a major high school English project. Although Haruna's goals are suddenly under threat by this unwelcome turn of events, Ryu’s priorities extend beyond the Academy.
That’s because Ryu’s biggest assignment of all could mean the difference between life and death...
Judge by the Cover introduces Ryu and Haruna in their last year at the Academy.
Seventeen-year-old Ryu Debiru thought he had everything under control, thought he knew exactly where his life was headed after graduation (assuming he makes it to graduation).
That was until the girl he hated became the girl he could no longer ignore.
Perhaps his secret life is no longer something he can keep secret.
Although, it seems like the entire city is harbouring secrets. What’s one more? Sure it might hurt a few people, even Ryu himself. Hey, he'll survive. He’s survived worse.
Except sometimes the truth comes out in ways no one expects. Then what? What happens when just surviving is no longer enough? What happens when even the truth is fatal?
