Avery Kylie Grambs is a normal 17 year old girl. She doesn’t exactly have money, but all
she wants is to have a good normal life with a normal job and good pay. But when she inherits a
billion dollar inheritance from philanthropist Tobias Hawthorne who has died recently, her whole
life turns around. More people start targeting her death, her love life suddenly goes up, and
people she didn’t even know start admiring her. Avery believes there’s a reason for her
inheriting the billion dollars out of the blue, so she teams up with some people to investigate the
reason she’s suddenly rich. But as Avery continues playing this game that Tobias Hawthorne left
for her, she realizes that the truth goes much deeper than she thought.

I loved this book. It is one of my very favorites. Avery’s character is so good, and I love
the plotline. I loved Jameson’s charm, and the fact that he and Avery are pretty much opposites
made me think that they’re great for each other, but that ending scene between Grayson and
Avery got to me too, so I don’t really have a specific side I’m on. Also, the plot twist at the very
end was amazing. In total, I loved this book, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes
mystery or suspense.

I liked the cover, and I think that it’s very pretty. There is clearly a lot going on in the
cover though. There’s the title in big, gold letters, and banners after each word. The banners
have the phrase that describe the story: She came from nothing, they have everything, let the
games begin. There’s a huge key behind the letters and banners that probably refers to the fact
that Avery has the keys to the Hawthorne House and the whole inheritance.There’s a necklace
strapped around the key, which probably refers to the necklace Avery wore to the gala, the one
that looks like Emily Laughlin’s. On top of the necklace is shown the glass ballerina, which Avery
was compared to by Nash Hawthorne. On the top left side, there’s a chess piece, which refers
to Harry and Avery’s games in the park, which actually turn out to be a very important part of the
story. On the bottom, the dagger refers to betrayals, and the crown represents how easily
nobody can become somebody. And I think the candle represents that there can be light in
darkness too. Overall, I think the cover was very accurate.
