In book two, journal entries from the second quarter of freshman year will reveal how these five students begin to become the most popular in the school, aka, the student nominated Phoenix Five.
Lily manages to get over Duffy enough to start liking his friend Coops. She used Vanessa to hack her way to better grades, but when she doesn't need the help cheating anymore, Vanessa steals her best friend away...

Duffy manages to get back on the basketball team, and things are going great with Sheridan--until he can't hack her diva attitude and takes Octavia up on her offer.

Jagger finally reveals his secret to the reader--but will he tell Audri? He can't bear to tell her the whole truth...
