Huge disappointment. This book focuses on Gabe Whitman, the teenager who isliving with the Deckers. Gabe's father is Chris Donatti, a mafia guy, and a recurring character in this series. Much of the book is about the love story between Gabe and Yasmine, a young Persian Jewish girl. They are brought together by their love of music.

The mystery resolves around two teen suicides at a prestigious private high school. Besides having to suffer through pages of "text billet doux" between Gabe and Yasmine, the story just doesn't hold up. Since I didn't read the Twilight books, I have no idea whether this was Kellerman's, or her publishers attempt to attract that very lucrative audience.

For someone who has been reading these books for a long time, this feels like it was written by someone who doesn't know, or care, about her characters. Save yourself a few hours, pass on this one.
