After a bullied girl kills herself, the leader of the mean girl clique that bullied her tries to cover up everything. A page-turner for fans of Pretty Little Liars.

A friendless high schooler kills herself, and her parents seek to press criminal charges against those who bullied her. The clique that bullied her seeks to keep their names clear. A well-woven story, but unpleasant, with few sympathetic characters and little hope. Also, the author lost me 27 pages in with this sentence: “I love mornings like this in Seattle—you can see Mount Hood from the hill where we live . . .” Mount Hood is in Oregon. You can’t see it from here even on the clearest of days. The Mountain is Mt Rainier! The author has little details about Seattle landmarks (Scarecrow Video) correct, but he somehow missed the name of one of the most important of all (this mistake repeats itself several times). For an out-of-town reader it’s not a big deal, but for a local reader it completely discards believability.

The book was really good, I didn't expect so much hurt and pain. I really felt for the characters especially Leslie. I felt like I was there experiencing different emotion as I read the book. I would suggest people to read this book, there so much interesting events that happens.

This was so interesting and sad. I cried a lot. I can't believe people would actually do this, and Macie. Wow she was using everyone else to do her dirty work so she wouldn't get in trouble but everyone else would. You should read it its a good book to read.

I liked it a lot. The ending could have been better. But it was still good.

The ending is frustrating on many levels, but it is a good exposition on what might happen in an online bullying situation.
