Breakfast Club meets Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars. This was a fun read, although I did guess the ending about half way through the book. But, I still wanted to see what happened next.— Audrey H.
Nothing gets me out of a reading slump quite like a good mystery, and this fast-paced story of four teenagers framed for murder was the perfect quick read. Though it's a young adult novel, it's a great option for adult mystery readers looking for something a little less gory than their usual fare.— Rebecca
