Just when you think you have this well-written, expertly crafted mystery all figured out, along comes a startling transition that moves the story in another direction. Sharon McKay, 18, is on trial for murdering her best friend, the wealthy, beautiful Ann Rice. It's established almost immediately, however, that Sharon is innocent. A series of flashbacks seen from Ann's perspective reveals that she blames Sharon for the suicide of Ann's brother, who left a note indicating his unrequited love for Sharon. Seeking retribution, Ann concocts an elaborate scheme to frame her, and coaxes Paul, Ann's shiftless 20-year-old fiance, to help. Through the course of the trial, Sharon's lawyer presents key evidence, which ultimately frees her and incarcerates Paul. But the road doesn't end there, and readers will stay along for a breathless ride until they reach the somewhat quirky conclusion. Significantly more gory than the standard YA offering, this is best directed toward the older range of the age spectrum. Ages 13-up.
