The book is all about four stereotypical students having to spend detention with their fellow student that has a gossip blog. When Simon, the gossip, dies in a mysterious way during that detention, the other four students are immediately put in the spotlight. During the investigation, the police find an unpublished blog that has information that ruin those four students that were in the room with Simon. Did one or more of them conspire to kill Simon or are they innocent? My lips are sealed.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I thought the "whodunnit" aspect was done quite well. When I wasn't reading the book, I would debate in my mind about who I thought had done the misdeed. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see what would happen. The author did a great job in creating these characters and I found myself liking them and hoping that none of them were the killer. This is the author's debut novel and I would gladly read her next book, especially if it's as good as this one.
If you love mystery thriller type of books-you'll certainly love this one. I highly recommend giving this book a read, you won't regret it!
The main characters are all teenagers, and like teenagers, they can be pretty cringy. There were plenty of parts that made me go "Oh god, start thinking with your brains, not your hormones!" You'd think that would be a bad thing, but I loved it, because these characters were very realistic. I'm tired of reading YA books where the main characters are wise old souls in 16 year old bodies. What teenager isn't a little annoying?
I can't wait for this to become the next big book sensation! I would not be surprised if it becomes a tv series.
