I absolutely tore through this book, and as much as I loved the main characters, I didn't like the mystery, or, to be fair, several mysteries that happened to be connected.

There was the Truth or Dare game,
Spoiler the Intense Guy, the threats for Eli, and then the personal problems (Knox's family life and love life, Maeve's leukemia possibly returning, Phoebe's dad's death).
When you add in the other people at school, the cameos of the Bayside Four, and all the other side characters, it was quite overwhelming. 

I feel like the answer to the mysteries was a bit convoluted and trite. The fact that the ending was a bit vague and cut off makes it even worse; there are no answers about what happens next, what happens to their lives, which for me was a big plus in the first book.

Overall, worth reading for the amazing characters and world, but not for the actual mystery.
