On doomsday we wear pink.

Ken Hilton rules Willows High with his carbon copies, Ken Roberts and Ken Carson, standing next to his throne. It can be hard to tell the Kens apart. There are minor differences in each edition, but all Kens are created from the same mold, straight out of Satan’s doll factory. Soul sold separately.

Tommy Rawlins can’t help but compare himself to these shimmering images of perfection that glide through the halls. But in a school where the Kens are queens who are treated like Queens, Tommy isn’t on their shelf.

A once-in-a-lifetime chance at becoming a Ken changes everything for Tommy, just as his eye is caught by the new doll on campus, Blaine. But when their shared desire to overthrow Ken Hilton takes a shocking turn, Tommy must decide how willing he is to reinvent himself—inside and out. Is this new version of Tommy everything he’s always wanted to be, or has he become a puppet in a sadistic plan?

When Everything Feels Like the Movies

Everyone wanted to break me. But stars aren’t broken, they explode. And I was the ultimate supernova.

My name was Jude. They called me Judy. I was beautiful either way.

School was basically a movie set. We were all just playing our parts. The Crew, the Extras, the Movie Stars. No one was ever real… especially me. I didn’t fit any category.

All the girls watched me – I could walk so much better than them in heels, and my make-up was always flawless.

All the boys wanted to, well, you know… even if they didn’t admit it. They loved me, they hated me, but they could never ignore me.

I only had eyes for Luke. A red carpet rolled out from my heart towards him and this year, on Valentine’s Day, I was going to walk that carpet and find my mark next to him. It would be like a dream.

But my dream was going to turn into a nightmare.

This is my story.
