Common Sense says
As they dig deeper, they uncover a dangerous world of corruption and lies, and in the process put their own lives in jeopardy. Addison Schacht Elgort is an intelligent high school senior who frequently hangs out with his best friend, Phoebe Moretz. On the day Phoebe lost her virginity to Addison, one of their fellow classmates, Kevin was fatally shot at his workplace. The incident changes their lives forever, as Addison becomes obsessed in finding out the truth behind the killing. And that includes checking on dangerous drug dealers and some other suspicious characters that could be involved in the murder. For a start, the character of Addison Schacht is not someone you love instantly. He is too smart for his own good and overly pretentious, who in the world carries a beeper and listens to cassette tapes in this era? Could it be the sudden death of his mum linked to his behavior problem? Pity the stars involved, this teen crime thriller is just plain awful perhaps you should just go ahead and get the book. Not much of a conspiracy to talk about nor function as a decent thriller, this one has self-importance written all over it.
