The Rumor Game by Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra


All it takes is one spark to start a blaze.

At Foxham Prep, a posh private school for the children of DC’s elite, a single rumor has the power to ruin a life.

Nobody knows that better than Bryn. She used to have it all—the perfect boyfriend, a bright future in politics, and even popularity, thanks to her best friend, cheer captain Cora. Then one mistake sparked a scandal that burned it all to the ground.

Now it’s the start of a new school year and the spotlight has shifted: It’s geeky Georgie, newly hot after a summer makeover, whose name is on everyone’s lips. When a rumor ignites, Georgie rockets up the school’s social hierarchy, pitting her and Cora against each other. It grants her Foxham stardom . . . but it also makes her a target.

As the rumors grow and morph, blazing like wildfire through the school’s social media, all three girls’ lives begin to unravel. But one person close to the drama has the power to stop the gossip in its tracks. The question is—do they even want to?

My Review:

Rumors can be hurtful even in high school. Some can be true or made up. Only you can decide on that.

Bryn caused a terrible account, was it really an accident?

Georgia lost weight and now a slot. Going after people guys.

Cora the popular girl must deal with her boyfriend cheating on her.

Bryn, Georgia and Cora are center around huge rumors at school. But what the real story behind those them. High can be tough as it is and now your center around rumors from everyone. What is really true? Who is starting these rumors in first place?

The Rumor Game book I did liked. It deals with the pressure of high school life. Each of three main characters dealing with family drama and school stuff. This book has some trigger warnings and can be sensitive to other readers. This book is kinda of a realistic of what high school life is. Sometimes you must block the negative online and live life thr best you can. Also learn who your real friends are. High school can be tough at times, but gonna try best to take it one day at a time. Also if your feeling overwhelmed, don’t be afraid to talking to an adult. This book deals with real issues and sensitive again for some readers when you go into it..
