What is this book about?

 Flare is power.  With only a drop of flare, one can light the night sky with fireworks . . . or burn a building to the ground — and  17 year-old Ingrid Ellis wants her fair share. 

Ingrid doesn’t have a family fortune, monetary or magical, but at least she has a plan: Rise to the top on the arm of Linden Holt, heir to a hefty political legacy and the largest fortune of flare in all of Candesce. Her only obstacle is Linden’s father who refuses to acknowledge her.

So when Senator Holt announces his run for president, Ingrid uses the situation to her advantage. She strikes a deal to spy on the senator’s opposition in exchange for his approval and the status she so desperately craves. But the longer Ingrid wears two masks, the more she questions where her true allegiances lie.
Will she stand with the Holts, or will she forge her own path?

Choose to read this lavish fantasy novel with a Jazz Age spark, where a politically savvy teen must weigh her desire to climb the social ladder against her heart in a world where magic buys votes.
