I binge-read this book, not due to the murder mystery but rather because of its rich character development. Four high school students: Nate, Cooper, Addy, and Bronwyn become the center of attention (and suspects) due to the death a fellow classmate, Simon. Before reading the book, I thought it would be a cliche teen novel with complicated plot lines, and flat stereotyped characters. But I was wrong, the book was a pleasant surprise. From the first 10 page or so, the book wastes no time to get to the main story, the murder of Simon. From there, the book pulls you in with a cat and mouse game. Sure it has drag but the author uses it to her advantage. Every time the story slows down, it develops or reveals a layer of a character in the book. Sure the book has tropes but all of them feel real rather than stereotyped. The book also presses at several important issues that I did not expect (and I will not spoil in the review). In the end, it is a book that I would recommend highly to everyone I know.
