This book has been calling to me from the YA shelves for months now. I'm not a hundred percent sure why, in retrospect.

The most interesting part was the intertwining 4 storylines--one timeline, 4 points of view. The four girls sounded very similar; only Lauren was distinguishable for her whining. When the spoke out loud, then the differences were pronounced, but they all had the same internal voice (Beth Neff's, perhaps?). It was also a somewhat improbable ending. I've seen school teachers' careers destroyed from allegations of sexual harassment that turned out to be completely groundless. It doesn't matter--the accusation is all that's needed. This book made it sound like you could act how you like, and it will work out anyway, that the consequences won't be so bad. I think that wasn't what they were going for.
