veryone thinks high school is hell. Students in the town of Tartarus might actually be right.

Mythical mortals once lived at the whim of the gods. A hundred generations later, little has changed. Bastian Vandenberg's fate as a fifteen year-old is still governed by godlike elders. He finds himself powerless over his feelings for Dora Peterson and Evie Smith. And his uncontrollable best friend Noah is going to get him stuck in detention (if not a youth detention centre.) Round and Round is the story of four students grasping at control of their destinies and trying to break free of their tragic flaws. They uncover a mystery that begins with the disappearance of the school's most gifted pupils, and goes all the way up to the principal and the head of the school board.

At which point, four teenage mortals take up the task of bringing down the gods.
