Sometimes the F-word can have more than one meaning.For Cassandra Davis, the F-word is fraternityspecifically Delta Tau Chi, a house on probation and on the verge of being banned from campus. Accused of offensive, sexist behavior, they have one year to clean up their act. For the DTC brothers, the F-word is feministthe type of person who writes articles in the school paper about why they should lose their home.With one shot at a scholarship to attend the university of her dreams, Cassie pitches a research project: to pledge Delta Tau Chi and provide proof of their misogynistic behavior. Theyre frat boys. She knows exactly what to expect once she gets there.
