This book is great for a fun, meaningless summer read. Some of the dialogue is beyond cheesy and almost cringeworthy, and the last couple chapters were rushed and then boring. I still enjoyed it though. if you want a mindless guilty pleasure, then this is it.

I think this is more of an adult book by Sara Shepard and not a YA mystery. All the characters are in their 20s with spouses, kids, or with college degrees already. No teen drama. I really did enjoy this book. The beginning was a bit confusing- you are introduced to so many characters all at once. getting past that was daunting but the mystery quickly sucked me in and kept me guessing up to the very end!

This entertaining book by Sara Shepard about a rich family kept you guessing until the end. It seems as though there will be a sequel.
