Description: Owen Matthews is an 18-year-old bad-boy, who has bounced through more New England prep schools than he can count. Down to his last strike, Owen is sent to Westover Prep, where he is quickly smitten with Dodger Allen. Owen learns that Dodger runs a "recreational liar's club," which he decides to take to a much higher level. Owen sends out a campus-wide email about a fictitious serial killer terrorizing the area. The hoax quickly turns serious after students begin to really disappear; and Owen's own lie begins to come true. Now, Owen must discover if this is simply a prank being played on him - or whether there truly is a serial killer on the loose. It's a modern retelling of the fable "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" that begs the question, "when does a lie become the truth?"
