Black Lyon: The ABI Acardi Series (Paperback)
California reigns supreme when it comes to billionaire families. LA's teenage elites live in a world far beyond the scope of most. Amidst the land of sunny beaches, palm trees, and Hollywood stars, this small, tight-knit group of heirs rarely welcomes outsiders. But when they meet Abi Acardi, some go against that social norm and make an exception.
Anxious about rebuilding her life on the West Coast, she braces for the worst, not knowing what to expect. Venturing beyond the gates of her Bel Air home, she does her best to blend - a monumental task since her father enrolled her in the exclusive Gilderson School. A far cry from Boston, Abi believes finding common ground with anyone there will be challenging.
A brunette standing out in a sea of blondes, pressured to fit in, it doesn't take long to immerse in everyone's extravagant lifestyle. Desperate to stay grounded and not let it go to her head, Abi's intriguing presence creates a wave of social upheaval that attracts the most popular guy in school. Drama abounds when she naively follows the crowd and downloads the Black Lyon App. Hoping to score a ticket to the famous DJ's Saturday Night Rave, the humble girl wonders whether she is worthy enough to make the cut. But when that experience spawns a series of conflicts that cloud Abi's judgment, will her friends be waiting in the wings to help, or will the famous DJ be hiding in the shadows, ready to save her?
BLACK LYON is a ride from beginning to end. It is a thrilling yet, heartfelt account of Abi Acardi's new fairytale life. YA Readers will dive into teen-oriented themes while the main character tries to navigate with a moral compass.
