I really enjoyed this book. Many reviews said that the plot twist and the ending were predictable, but I never expected it. I did like the plot twist when the mystery was unravelled, I also really loved the plot twists along the way. I think it was also really well written, and I loved how things slowly started to unravel and secrets became exposed. The mystery was the main focus of the story, but I also enjoyed the romance aspect between Nate and Bronwyn. I think they were really cute. While all characters were not exactly all loveable and great people, I loved their complex storyline for each character and their character development at the end of the book. I also liked the relation to The Breakfast Club at the beginning with the stereotypical high schoolers in detention, along with the Pretty Little Liars aspect at the end of the book. I do highly recommend this book, as even though the ending may be predictable for some, the story to get there is exciting and fun to read.

I've seen this book described as The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars and I have to say that is spot on. 

McManus' writing style is refreshing, and there were twists and turns that kept me guessing and changing my mind on what had happened all the way through. I was not expecting the end result, not until all the pieces were together that was for sure. 

I cannot wait to sink my teeth into her other books.
