While at a party, Callie finds the dead body of her friend, Katherine, and is discovered by others holding the knife she just pulled out of Katherine’s body. Callie is accused of the murder. Callie runs away from the scene and tries to discover who really killed Katherine.
The reader finds out through flashbacks that Katherine, although very popular and the leader of the group, wasn’t very well-liked by some of the girls. Callie contacts her ex-boyfriend, Slade, to help her in her quest for the killer. Slade has second thoughts about helping Callie because she broke up with him when he was stationed in the Mideast. Callie learns that things aren’t really what they seem, and finds herself setup to find the real killer.
I highly recommend this book for Mature Readers. The author presents the issues of being popular and trying to fit in very realistic. This is the second book in a trilogy. It stands alone very well. I didn’t realize it was part of a trilogy until I finished the book. 288 pages Ages 14 and up 978-1606842287
