Okay this book has won a gajillion awards, but I didn't know that when I bought it. I judged this one by the cover, and never looked back. Talk about getting sucked in!! I stayed up until 2 AM to finish this one. It is so good! If you're into psychological murder mysteries, which is totally my jam. The plot lines from all the different characters weave into each others lives, while addressing so many relevant adolescent issues. There's one particular character that I felt SO proud of--when you finish it tell me who you were proud of!
“That's the kind of person you can get away with killing: someone everybody else wants dead.”
Pay close attention and you might solve this. On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app. Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
“I know what it's like to tell yourself a lie so often that it becomes the truth.”
