Ben Weeks, whose ancestors helped found St. James — an exclusive New England boarding school — arrives only to find that the reality of St. James doesn’t quite match up with his imaginings.

Even as Ben and Ahmed struggle to prove themselves in the place they have revered for so long, each of them must face losing it forever.
