Not your everyday coming-of-age novel.

This story was supposed to be about Evie—how she hasn't made a friend in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes into her own once she learns to just be herself—but it isn't. Because when her classmate Elizabeth "Zabet" McCabe's murdered body is found in the woods, everything changes—and Evie's life is never the same again.

One little lie can start out like a small snowball, but if you're not careful it might roll away from you, out of control, into something unexpected and dangerous.

I did enjoy the whole story a fair bit although I do get a bit annoyed with books that don't really have a point.

Just a few days past the funeral, Evie notes as she walks the hallways at school, “Already people are letting Zabet’s death fade like the facts from last week’s test.” Hadley entices Evie to join her on the edge.
