In Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz’s series Georgetown Academy, we step into the shoes of four sophomores as they navigate issues of love, friendship, betrayal and scandal, in the hot-bed environment of nation’s capital.
Cool interactive feature alert: This digital series also lets you choose which girl you want to follow during a critical night of fun-filled drama. Depending on who you pick, you’ll see scandalous behavior, unexpected liaisons, and secret betrayals…all giving you a different perspective as the night unfolds.
