Not only did the new guy appear much older than most other Claremont High School students, the makeup caked on his face looked a little strange.
And from the start, Jeremy Hughes seemed a bit too interested in tracking down wild parties where he could find alcohol or drugs….
Months after the C-plus student donned his cap and gown to graduate with the Class of 2004, Hughes revealed in a TV interview that he was a 24-year-old Stanford graduate named Jeremy Iversen, who had gone undercover as a high school student in Southern California to research a novel….
Several students said that while they're looking forward to reading the book which is slated to be finished in late 2006 they have to laugh about his online claim that he was "totally accepted by students, teachers and parents alike."
"People would ask him all the time 'Are you a narc?'" said student Lauren Dorough, 16.
As for the "shocking truth" Iversen promises to deliver in the book, former classmate Martin said he wonders just how true to life it will be.
"Everyone just used to mess with him," Martin said. "People exaggerated all these stories."
