I quite enjoyed this. A nice little mystery in a high school setting with multiple strands weaving throughout the story. A good, tense and satisfying ending.
I was planning to rate this YA murder mystery a “so-so“ but it grew on me. I went in thinking it was going to be kind-of campy & fun (maybe it was the cover?) but it was actually very somber & emotionally-complex. Also, triggers galore. The prose isn't anything to write home about but the characters & plot are compelling enough. The slowly-revealed relationship between Jen & her secret suitor is so tender, young, & heartbreaking.
