This book was engrossing. Just when you think you have things figured out, things get turned around and you are left wondering just how you missed the clues.

Jess has a deep interest in her BFF, Angie, however Angie only has eyes for Margot. Things start off innocently enough, with just a glimpse into Jess and Angie's little world....until Margot and her rich and snobby friends come crashing into their world. Jess and Angie are introduced into a world different from their own, where things become murky and mysterious when Margot's friend Ryan is suddenly found missing after attending Margot's holiday party where very heated discussions were made between Jess and Ryan.

I grew to kind of like and sympathize with Jess. She is an interesting character, especially when the teenage years are so hard to navigate, never mind trying to juggle her growing interest in her BFF. Plus I rather enjoyed reading about her comics and how they progressed and tied into the storyline as we go further and further into the story.

The first half of the book had be glued for sure, as did what really happened that night. Parts of the second book was a little clunky and different from the first half, which could probably use a little more revision and work. Interesting read for sure
