"I don't know" is basically my opinion about this book. Even when I was reading it flipping page after page, reading chapter after chapter I couldn't make up my mind about whether I liked what I was reading or not. This was because the book lacked many elements and at the same time there were some parts of the book where I was left stunned. Character development was an issue here. Tessa and Callie were the same throughout the whole book, which was the main reason why this book was boring at some parts. Also, the "romances" didn't wrap up the way they were supposed to, that if there were any because I think there were but I'm not very sure. For example, the Callie, Ryan, and Nick love triangle didn't have an ending. Decker as the guy who "I think" liked Tessa just made a special appearance in the book and never showed up again. I was pretty much unsure about everything, except for the killer's identity: this one left me hooked. This book could've been the best YA thriller book I've ever read, but as I said, it lacked some important elements which dropped my rating from 5 to 3 stars.
