Lucinda Hayes, a teenager, has been found dead in the local playground. Her neck was broken. There are several suspects and at one time or another I had my mind made up who had done it. However, I was totally wrong. Yay!
The story is told by two teenagers that went to high school with Lucinda. Eaching having a different connection to the deceased girl. One a stalker secretly in love with her and the other, a friend who was (in her mind) betrayed by her. Jade and Cameron are both loners and total misfits. You can't help but feel for them. I loved Jade's screenplays that map out "what she should of said or done".
While the book starts out on a suspense novel with a gruesome death at the beginning, the gist of the book is so much more. A book of insights, discoveries, loss, finger pointing, betrayal and raw human emotion while dealing with a murder in a small town.
