Amy Becker arrives on the NSU campus with everything: a genius IQ, movie star looks, and a shipping magnate great-uncle who provides the jet, penthouse, designer clothes and jewels. Nothing is too good for her great-uncle’s “Yellowbird.” School is a new experience for a girl who has had tutors since she taught herself to read at age two. Amy is not at NSU for the education, however; it’s her chance to see a normal life. Her great-uncle sees her as his successor. Amy’s parents insist on the time at NSU to give her a chance to see and consider a life other than following her great-uncle. Amy goes along with her parents’ wishes because she loves them, but she is committed to running the shipping company. Once at NSU, Amy tries to blend in, but events keep getting in the way. An abusive boyfriend, attempted date rape, jealous and resentful sorority sisters, and any number of other problems are no match for a girl who used her mother’s shotgun, at the age of twelve, to defend herself from kidnap by two Russian Mafia members. Amy has skills, resources and determination. Yellowbird’s real problem is hidden from her and the ever-present bodyguards. Forces from two countries want control of the shipping company and think the great-uncle will sell with her out of the picture. They want her dead. They data mine to find a Virginia Tech-type killer to point at her, and stumble on a perfect subject in Jared Parker, a twisted loner enabled by politically powerful parents. A few precious seconds on the last day of school will determine if years of self-defense training will be enough to protect her and her fifty classmates, or if Jared will slaughter them all. She has experience on her side. She has killed before.
