I'm not sure the person who wrote the jacket description read the book. The main character barely interacts with his schoolmates, so he doesn't see or hear anything about the crimes. It's the new girl who develops a crush on him who's the key to everything. And I really didn't get the ending.

This book really hits home with the idea that you shouldn't have prejudice against others because you don't know their backstories. It is said that judging a person determines who you are not who they are. The book was a little choppy, but still good. The ending was mysterious, tragic, and really got me thinking.

DO NOT BE FOOLED, THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLY DISTURBING AND BLEAK DESPITE THE PROFOUND TRUTHS EXPRESSED WITHIN.
