I am an adult and was attracted to this book. I absolutely loved the book, could not put it down. Liked it much better than a popular new adult best seller I just read. It is difficult to figure out exactly what happened or how related to the student who passed away in detention. It touches on a number of issues teens may be dealing with. I want to pass this book onto my young niece but decided to wait until she is at least 14 years old. I get the impression this might be made into a series but think it would be better as a movie (maybe netflix).
