John Spencer, an English teacher at the elite Academy X, is struggling through the final weeks of the spring semester. But keeping his students focused on the genius and wit of Jane Austen is the least of his problems. His crush on the sexy librarian is beginning to warp his judgment. An unexpected promotion leaves him drowning in a sea of academic intrigue. Pushy parents demanding higher grades lurk behind every corner, and a favorite pupil suddenly reveals a cunning and sophistication far beyond her years. With each bumbling effort to keep everyone happy, John digs himself deeper into trouble until his very career is at stake. Academy X is a peek into New York City's top private schools - indeed into elite schools all over the country - where parents risk everything for their child's academic success, and no price is too high to achieve a coveted admission to Harvard, Yale, or Princeton.
