She found her teacher dead - hanging by a piece of electrical cord.
The North Carolina police think it was suicide. Her former friends - the Bluebloods - blame her for being there. And her father tells her to leave it alone.
But Blue van Meer is a student of books and can't let a mystery go. Because all her life puzzles both complicated and intricate have littered her path - her mother's death in a car crash; a childhood spent roaming from town to town; her dad's serial affairs.
Are these the fantasies of a teenager too lonely or clever for her own good? Or has Blue stumbled on something so dark, so devious, that her whole world is about to be flipped upside down?
"Brilliant. Guaranteed to join The Secret History and The Virgin Suicides as one of those rare books to become a cult hit and instant classic."
