"Flannery Culp wants you to know the whole story of her spectacularly awful senior year. Tyrants, perverts, tragic crushes, gossip, cruel jokes, and the hallucinatory effects of absinthe-- Flannery and the seven other friends in the Basic Eight have suffered through it all. But now, on tabloid television, they're calling Flannery a murderer, which is a total lie. It's true that high school can be so stressful sometimes. And it's true that sometimes a girl just has to kill someone. But Flan"nery wants you to know that she's not a murderer at all-- she's a murderess"--Provided by publisher.

Daniel Handler's first book, and one of his best in my opinion. This murderess details everything about her final year of high school, and where it all went wrong. She'll tell you the absolute truth of it all, or at least her version...

Really, really funny, and also completely engrossing. Flannery Culp won my heart.
