VIRTUAL LAUNCH for The Rumor Game by DHONIELLE CLAYTON & SONA CHARAIPTORA
DHONIELLE CLAYTON and SONA CHARAIPTORA — the incredibly talented team behind teen ballet drama Tiny Pretty Things, which has now been adapted into a hit show on Netflix — are back again with another drama full of twists and turns! This time, our scene is set at an elite private school — Foxham Preparatory Academy, where the children of Washington, D.C.’s most prestigious and powerful rub shoulders. And at Foxham Prep, a single rumor has the power to ruin lives.
In the stunning and emotional twists and turns of The Rumor Game, former-geek Georgie, newly hot after a summer makeover, is pitted by a drama-hungry school against queen-bee Cora. Cora, although always popular, is riding the coattails of a scandal that saw her boyfriend injured in a car crash and her ex-best friend Brynn cut off from the school's social world. Brynn used to be student body president, a somebody — now all her classmates see is a trashy white girl. Put all three together, and the entire school might go up in flames.
Tune in for an in-depth chat with DHONIELLE and ZORAIDA about The Rumor Game, Dhonielle's latest edge-of-your-seat social thriller and the pair's amazing podcast DEADLINE CITY, which seeks to give a behind-the-scenes look at the publishing industry!
