The title fits perfectly to this YA crime novel, but although the cover is a masterpiece, the book is too long a read. Clare, is overly analytic, having several reaction moments throughout the book where she just has to pause ... and ask herself: should I text him back, or not? Is my friend acting strange, or is she simply stressed?
And then there is this old friend from another town named Lincoln who she keeps wanting to call but never does. Did I really need to know about this guy?
Take away all the unnecessary fluff and I would give this 4 stars, easily. The crime scene is well done and the suspects interesting.
Why not give it a try?
