The story is engaging and as the mystery starts unraveling I found it hard to put down this book. The writing is very simple, which is typical of young adult fiction. However, please note that there is one detailed scene depicting a rape. There is also a scene depicting several murders. If you are a parent, please read it yourself first so you can decide whether your teen is mature enough for it.
