Flannery Culp wants you to know the whole story of her spectacularly awful senior year. Tyrants, perverts, tragic crushes, gossip, cruel jokes, and the hallucinatory effects of absinthe -- Flannery and the seven other friends in the Basic Eight have suffered through it all. But now, on tabloid television, they're calling Flannery a murderer, which is a total lie. It's true that high school can be so stressful sometimes. And it's true that sometimes a girl just has to kill someone. But Flannery wants you to know that she's not a murderer at all -- she's a murderess.

If you are looking for a book with a happy ending, look elsewhere. This books ending leaves something to be desired, but it gets four stars for shock value alone. You'll never see the twist coming and it will smack you right in the face. Yes, you know she's gonna kill Adam, she makes no secret of...
