According to its authors (book by Kyle Holmes and music and lyrics by David Taylor Gomes), “Ranked tells the story of a dystopian world where competition reaches new heights as publicized academic excellence defines each student’s worth. In the face of an intense and perverse culture of performance, Lily must come to grips with her place in the status quo as she watches friends and enemies alike destroy themselves and each other to score their way to the top of the academic leaderboards. When an impossible lie is discovered, the fate of these students’ futures hangs in the balance.”
