Ace of Spades is set in a private prep school that is rocked by the text revelations of Aces. Aces is going after the school’s most popular girl, Chiamaka, who has her entire life planned meticulously, and musician, Devon.
It’s best to know nothing about the plot going in. I listening to the audio version while organizing my house. The book is awesome! The plot is similar to Gossip Girl until it makes a radical twist in the middle. Then, it makes you want to flip those pages even faster so you can read the startling conclusion. I turned up the speed to 2X.
The narrator, in normal speed, has the perfect dramatic timbre for a young adult. Everything is life or death—just as it is in a real adolescent’s life.
Overall, Ace of Spades deserves 5 stars!
