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

SpoilerCooper Clay turns out to be gay, which as an LGBTQ+ person I loved.
The characters aren’t perfect, which made them very lovable to me. I’m not usually a romance person, but there were a few couples that formed and even some that broke up. The ending was very predictable, which is what knocked it down to a 3.75, but if you’re more interested in the characters’ journey than the actual ending, this would be great for you.
