Jackson Landis kept secrets. It’s how he got girls into bed, the grades he wanted, and a reputation for being the life of the party.
But now he’s dead, and no one knows how or why. Especially not the four girls whose secrets he protected. Secrets so scandalous they could cause each girl to lose something valuable. Secrets so dark, someone may have killed for them.
The four girls – a campus drug dealer, an overweight bookworm, a closeted lesbian, and a spoiled princess have one thing in common – they’re terrified the things Jackson knew may not have died with him. As Reggie, Haddie, Val, and Livie try to piece together her own role in Jackson’s death, each girl realizes Jackson had some not-so-pretty skeletons of his own.
Which makes a girl wonder, who really wanted Jackson Landis dead?
This book was a great quick read for YA readers. Through out the book you see the multiple POVs from 4 girls who have had interactions with Jackson, who was found dead. I just wanted to now who killed him! Each time I read a new POV I could see how that person killed him, but I could also see why they didn’t. Sometimes multiple Povs are hard to follow, but these authors made it work. While waiting I couldn’t wait to see what the character had to say next!
I’m not sure if it was because Jackson didn’t have a POV or anything, but the more I got to know him through the girls, the more I didn’t like him. I’m not really too sure what attracted everyone to him. I also didn’t have a favorite character in this one. They all had their quirks, but they also all have their moments where they were a little likable.
Again this was a quick great YA read that I know teens will enjoy.
