 Fun and fast paced read. I found that the four main characters were explored equally and their personalities and character drawn out and improved. However there were still some shallow aspects to them which is typically expected for this sort of YA genre. I didn't predict the big reveal, which was a nice surprise as I expected it to be predictable. I think McManus did a good job throwing the reader off with adding different suspicions and aspects to the mystery.
