When Cat discovers that her best friend Patrick has been the victim of a hate crime, she vows to find out who did it - especially given the sheriff department's apathy and unwillingness to investigate any possible leads. As she continues to question people close to Patrick, Cat soon finds herself running into people who don't want her digging up dirt into Patrick's past and present. Part social commentary, part mystery, Lauren Myracle manages to deal with the heavy subject matter of the plot with respect and dignity.

The story grabs you from the very beginning and won't let you go, even long after reading the final page. I finished this book last night and actually found myself re-living the ending as I was driving home from work today and it was just as vivid as when I read it last night.
