  • On September 5th, 2017, it was announced that a new high school themed book was in the works through Choices' social media pages. [1] [2]
  • This is the first book that has had all of its chapters released at once with the exception of the first three initial books, "The Freshman, Book 1", "The Crown & The Flame, Book 1" and "Most Wanted, Book 1". [3]
  • This is the second series that gives a last name to your character. The first being "The Royal Romance" series and the third being the "Home for the Holidays" series.
  • The story is based on one of Pixelberry's other games, High School Story and acts as a sequel to it, as the book takes place two years after the events of the original app.
    • Payton, Julian, Autumn, Mia, Ezra, Nishan, Koh, Kara, Max, Wes, Sakura, characters in that game, make frequent appearances throughout the book.
    • Like the characters mentioned above, the rival school, Hearst High, is also based on the rival school of the same name. Max and Kara are also students of Hearst High, a detail found in both the original app and the book.
  • On November 16th, 2017, Pixelberry released the soundtracks of the series.[4]
  • In Chapter 4, if you choose to go to the diner with Maria and afterward choose "Yeah, I've gone with a date." it will be mentioned that your character has an ex.
  • In Chapter 6, If you choose to play the video game with the nerds, you will be fighting against another unskilled player called KappaKutie12345. The player is most likely Madison from the "The Freshman" / "The Sophomore" series. This strengthens the idea that all of Choices' series take place in one common universe.
  • In Chapter 9, if you choose to look under the tree, you will find an old gas mask. When you put it on, your character will ask, "Mummy? Are you my mummy?", a reference to the "The Empty Child", an episode of the long-running sci-fi series, "Doctor Who".
  • The title of Chapter 11, "Berry's Seven" is a reference to the "Ocean's Eleven" film series.
  • Chapter 15's final scene is recycled and expanded into the opening chapter of High School Story, Book 2.
  • If you select the prom theme, 'Happily Ever After', Emma makes a comment about the Prince not choosing the waitress in the Coronation Ball. This is clearly a reference to the events of The Royal Romance, Book 1.
  • The book takes place over a the course of six weeks.
