This book kept me on my toes till the very end. I wouldn’t say it was predictable at all, and was overall very creative and interesting to keep up with Pip as she uncovers the truth of a murder accusation case. It was intriguing to see the way she worked through the case, with limited resources and being a teenager investigating such a taboo topic in her town, along with the mental toll it took on her. This is overall fast paced and also has a slight romance. I feel like the book could have been a little shorter, however, the writing is still very interesting.

This book is so incredibly written. Nothing in the book feels too boring and everything is set perfectly. There are many characters in the book so it can be a little confusing trying to figure out who is who but nonetheless the author does a good job at making sure that we are able to differentiate between them. This is overall a very good book, has a mystery theme, and several plot twists to keep you entertained.
