This might appeal to a younger audience, especially if they like to read about sexually promiscuous teenagers being total bitches.  Right from the beginning, I was skeptical of the mystery, the pacing felt off.  The characters are completely unlikable, basically, all of them.  The conversations between them are just over-the-top bizarre and contradictory. These girls are just so flipping mean and I kind feel like they got what they deserved, well sort of... 

 

I was compelled to read this until the end, although I'm not sure why, just to see who it was, maybe.  Which I more or less guessed. 

 

Will I read more from this Author?  No, I will not.  Her writing is just not for me.
