When his little sister is caught with a bag of weed, seventeen-year-old Aaron Foster takes the fall. To keep the cops from tearing his family apart, Aaron agrees to go undercover and help bust the dealer who’s funneling drugs into his Miami high school. But making friends with the school’s biggest players isn’t easy for a waste-case loner from the wrong part of town. Stuck between the cops on one hand and a crazy party scene on the other, Aaron befriends Morgan Baskin—a cute but troubled rich girl who might be his link to the supplier. But just when he realizes he’s falling for Morgan, the unbearable weight of his lies threatens to crush them both.

Reviews of Narc:

"Chappell does a great job of showing readers a gritty Miami most people don't think about when they think of South Beach and sunshine, and populating it with realistic characters. Really great book." —Trish Doller, author of Something Like Normal
