Book Blurb

Yale hopeful Bronwyn has never publicly broken a rule.

Sports star Cooper only knows what he’s doing in the baseball diamond.

Bad boy Nate is one misstep away from a life of crime.

Prom queen Addy is holding together the cracks in her perfect life.

And outsider Simon, creator of the notorious gossip app at Bayview High, won’t ever talk about any of them again.

He dies 24 hours before he could post their deepest secrets online. Investigators conclude it’s no accident. All of them are suspects.

Everyone has secrets, right?

What really matters is how far you’ll go to protect them


It is a marvellous and amazing read. I could’ve binged on watching if this book is a TV-shows. Something about the book make it so addictive and enjoyable read. It’s a simple linguistics and easy to understand.  I love the writing styles of the author. The character’s POV makes me immersed myself as them, and I can feel their thought. It’s taken me a while for me to write this review because there’s aren’t just words to describe how completely readable this book is. It’s such a triumph!

I love the pace of the story. The consistency and storyline was always kept on track without revealing the clue too much. I need to read more to find the clue. It’s kept me intrigued along my read and make me want to dig more for their secrets. It’s such a creative way for a murderer. Seriously, I’m amazed!

Talking about characters, I’d like to say that I love them all. Everyone is perfect for me! My most fav is Nate Macauley! I love how kinky this guy was. I found it cute. I love everyone’s personalities. They don’t have anything in common, but they manage to be a good friend. I love the friendship value there.

I admit I couldn’t guess the murderer before the last chapter. Or maybe I’m too dope! I told you the ending is mind blowing! Totally UNEXPECTED!

Overall, I totally LOVE this book! This beyond my expectation from the YA Mystery that I’ve read before. This will be my fav high school crime!  I’d HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book if you are into mystery or crime.
