Book description

"Poor Oto Edogawa can't seem to catch a break. When her wealthy family loses its fortune, she keeps up pretenses at her elite school for the super rich, Eitoku Academy, by supporting herself with a low-wage convenience store job. If the self-appointed guardians of the school and successors of the legendary "F4," the "Correct 5," discover her secret poverty, she'll be expelled! But none of them would ever stoop to shop at a plebeian convenience store...right?"
