When six students at Flagstaff's Xavier Prep are blamed for an explosion in the lab, they're given a choice. Be expelled or complete an internship for Ammon Carver, a technocrat with a social media site called The Six.
The motley group includes a student politician, a scholar turned pregnant teen and the suave scion of the town’s richest family. With futures on the line, they agree to test Carver’s site. He says it’s designed to show the consequences of online behavior. But that’s an understatement. The interns use The Six to make pizzas and homework assignments appear with a click.
When one takes their new power too far, some interns vow to shut down the site forever. But first, they'll have to do something about the killer cheerleaders who’ve trapped them inside the school.
THE SIX is a high stakes Breakfast Club where one wrong click may cost you your life.

One piece of paper. That’s all it took to change Rachel Benedict’s destiny.
Before fourth period, she spotted the square red note taped to her locker. AP Chemistry moved to Classroom Six. It would figure the new classroom was on the opposite side of the world. Somebody up there must love watching her waddle around. As she ducked between polo-clad preppies loitering in the hall she reminded herself that this had to work. Xavier Prep was her last chance.
Classroom six was in Old Main. The red brick building at the back of campus started out as a church, became the school, and was now neglected in favor of more modern stucco halls.
Rachel arrived in Flagstaff, Arizona in time to start the winter term. It was day three and so far no one stared at her too much. No one whisperedscience slut. It had to be the matronly uniform. Even at six months pregnant, she looked the same as everybody else. And when you spent your sixteenth birthday staring at a tiny pink strip, these small victories mattered.
The crowds thinned as she moved into the old building. She swung open the classroom door to find a cluster of students blocking the entrance.
A tall girl huffed in a mixture of surprise and irritation. "Oh great. What the hell are you doing here?" Rachel stared at the tan legs that shot out from the regulation plaid skirt. Somehow this girl turned the uniform into a sexy schoolgirl costume.
