Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
My Review 5 Stars
Detention. Five students attend, only four leave. Bronwyn has never broken a rule. Cooper a baseball star. Nate has broken all the rules. Addy is trying to hold everything together. Simon is a nobody he is however the creator of a gossip app at the school. All four of them have a secret just before Simon was going to share them he dies.
This book is the second 5 star read this year. It’s gripping, you just want to know what did actually happen that day in detention. I loved this book so much, the plot is well thought out. The author is clever by giving us hints which make you think throughout.
Reading the blurb you would think it’s just your typical school novel you have the good girl, bad boy, the sports star and the popular prom queen but it’s really not.
At the start of all this Bronwyn is more worried if her one detention will go on her record and if this will affect her chances getting into the best college. She does however make a valid point why are they in detention when they didn’t do any thing. Nate lives in a rough house, his dad had an accident at work so they both rely on social security. His mum has bipolar one day she left and never came back. Nate resorts to selling weed and painkillers just for some extra money. Cooper is the sports star all his dad is interested in is if he is going to get in the baseball team. In all honesty I wasn’t really interested in his chapters however that did change towards the end. Addy is the prom queen who has an amazing boyfriend Jake. Jake though calls all the shots. Addy has been keeping a secret though for months now that she has to tell him. I did feel sorry for her though at the end but i won’t go into detail as i don’t want to give anything away. Simon uses his app to get the attention he wants which he doesn’t get at school. He has shared so many secrets that many people didn’t like him. The one question i had was, why them four?
I did guess though what did happen but that didn’t affect how much I enjoyed it as I was not expecting everything else that came with the reveal. I was expecting this book to be really slow to get the point but it wasn’t. Overall if you haven’t already it i would highly recommend you read this one.
