Omg so, I just finished reading this and it's so fricking good!

I love how we are able to watch the plot developing from all the four main characters' points of view, and how none of them were perfect and one dimensional. They all had something - a secret, a motivation, a fear, a purpose — and Karen M. McManus wrote them so beautifully! 

I think the only downside was that I kind of figured out who the culprit behind everything was by the time I finished reading the first half. I don't know if it was just a lucky guess or if it was due to all the post-its I sticked onto my wall, though. Nevertheless  the fact that I stayed invested throughout the whole book while knowing who probably did it just shows how awesome this book is. 

ALSO, THE ROMANCE??? DAMN I LOVED IT

The book is a good but you can kinda figure out the plot. Overall the book is great for someone who likes mistery, crimes and solving puzzles.

I picked this up because I’ve seen everyone and their mother loving it but something about the constantly switching characters just annoyed me. I didn’t feel connected to any character, they were all quite annoying. I also was totally thrown out of the story when it was mentioned that the character Simon was straight. Name me a straight high school teenage boy that runs a goddamn gossip blog.
