Meet Marco Perez, Illuminati-obsessed teenager about to begin the schoolyear at Riverrun Academy. He convinces four other classmates, Bennet, Isabella, Jaquin, and Kaleigh, to create a pact to help one another reach new heights. Together, they represent five different cliques at Riverrun: student government, band, performance arts, men’s sports and women’s sports. As the year gets started, this nascent secret society, the Secret Tortoise, sets its plans in motion to take control of each sector and create as much influence as possible.
