really liked it

When I read the description on the back cover, a few words immediately caught my eye. “Is he dead?” “Yeah, I think so.” This got me a little interested, but I was still sceptical, since it looked like a pretty
normal book with a fairly ordinary and slightly boring plot. But now
that I have finished reading this book, I have to say that it was
extremely captivating, with an attention-grabbing plot, fascinating characters, and remarkable ideas.

This book talks about a rebellious teen, Dooley, who has made
commitment to stay good and start over new. Arriving at a new school, complications arise when Dooley witnesses a possible suicide .. or
murder. As Dooley mixes himself into the wrong crowd of friends once again, lives are taken, and Dooley puts his own at risk. Determined to solve this mystery on his own, he slowly puts together the puzzle
pieces, only to discover the shocking truth behind it all.

Although I'm not a big fan of mystery books, this one had me on the edge of my seat and I was completely surprised by the ending. The dark twists and turns had me anxious to read on and find out how this
mystery would end. Dooley's character was very intriguing and
fascinating. His dark past that the author rarely ever mentions kept me craving to know more about Dooley. His rebellious and intimidating exterior, yet kind and sincere interior, had me mesmerized at how he manages to have such an effect on the characters in the book.

The plot itself was unique and distinctive. I’ve never read a book with such a storyline, and I know that this story will definitely stick to me. Overall, I thought this was an excellent book, suitable
for any teen or adult audience, and I highly recommend this book to others. It introduces you to a whole new dark, risky, and dangerous
world, and keeps you on the edge of your seat as you go spiralling into the mysteries.
