In the first novel of the Extracurricular episodic series:
Is love an illusion?
In Extracurricular, new lust, old loves, a dark family secret, and rich crazy parents behaving badly lead to a college admissions cheating scandal, setting off a crisis of conscience for the parents, teachers, administrator, and the students involved —
And a catharsis for one couple about their marriage.
As with all illusions, it starts with an unrequited love story...
