** spoiler alert ** I am not usually hooked by mysteries, but this one had such an interesting premise -- an inexplicable shooting involving three girls, best friends, at a suburban highschool-- that I read on. But in the end I was disappointed. The solution seemed contrived, unrelated to the personalities of the characters -- a typical mystery writer's attempt to dig up the *least* likely explanation for an event (so the reader will not be able to guess at it). Lippman threw away a good opportunity here to explore the fairly dark world of contemporary teens.
