I was never a delinquent.
I'm just misunderstood.
Of course, that's not how the judge saw it.
That's how I wound up at freaky Blackthorn Academy. Talk about boring. There isn't even a mall nearby. I mean, what did they expect a girl from Beverly Hills to do?
Also, from the start I could tell there was something really weird about Blackthorn:
The headmaster, Mr. Kim, knew way too much about me.
The class schedule features Intro to Code Theory and Microelectronics.
A whole section of the school is off-limits.
Then the FBI showed up ... and Mr. Kim disappeared.
Well, here's something Mr. Kim didn't know about me: Rachel Buchanan never gives up when there are secrets to uncover. Watch out, Blackthorn Academy!

Michael P. Spradlin was born and raised in a small town in Michigan. Since the publication of Spy Goddess, Book One: Live and Let Shop, he has been hard at work chronicling the rise of the Mithrian menace. This work requires him to travel the globe extensively, searching out Mithrians wherever they may be. When not traveling he lives in Michigan with his family, where he keeps a close eye on suspicious Hoosier activity in nearby Indiana. If you have information on the activities of suspected Mithrians you may contact Michael Spradlin via secure, encrypted, virus-free e-mail through his website, www.MichaelSpradlin.com.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7-10–Rachel Buchanan, 15, is Blackthorn Academy's newest student. Arrested in California for grand theft auto, the wealthy teen is sent to this Pennsylvania boarding school to avoid a sentence in juvenile detention. It is here that Rachel's life changes forever. Blackthorn Academy is no ordinary boarding school, and Jonathon Kim is no ordinary headmaster. Rachel's penchant for discovering the truth leads her unwittingly into her first mission–to save the Book of Seraphim–and ultimately to uncover Kim's secret. A former FBI special agent, the headmaster runs a covert operation through the school to protect the world from Simon Blankenship, another former Special Forces agent who believes he is the mythical underworld god, Mithras, reborn and destined to rule the world. Although the characters are not terribly complex and the plot is fairly far-fetched, the book is an entertaining page-turner. Spradlin captures the perfect teenage voice in his protagonist; she is more than just a spoiled, fashion-conscious teen from Beverly Hills–she is the Spy Goddess–witty and smart with an edge. Overall, this is an intelligent, exciting mystery that will have broad appeal.–Leigh Ann Morlock, formerly at Vernonia School District, OR
