A strong mystery – the kind that has you occasionally doubting the reliability of your narrators – and that pulls you into a distinct world. Here, it’s high school. And if we learned anything from Veronica Mars, it’s that high school can be a great setting for some serious crimes. Yes, I frequently wondered “what would Veronica do?” (WWVD) since even though this lacks the humor of Veronica Mars, there are some similarities in the stories told. The only thing holding me back was that I never quite connected with either of the narrators – something that isn’t necessarily a flaw but that usually matters to me as a reader.
Recommended for mystery fans high school and up.
