There's no explicit sexual content. Lia kisses a boy but that's about as far as it goes. I don't think anyone even mentions sex in the book. One character is gay; he doesn't mention having a boyfriend, though he makes a casual reference to "letting a hot guy cloud our judgment."
I don't read widely in YA fiction, but this book seemed fairly tame in these areas. I hope this helps! (less)
Smart characterizations, thrilling twists, nail-biter action scenes wrapped up a soft romance and meaningful end ...more

I loved the plot and the mystery, but what kept me turning the pages were the characters. All of them, including the secondary characters, were so well written.

*Thank you to the publisher and author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Having lived in Chicago for 7 years, I loved the reminders of the city’s fun tourist spots and architectural treasures. The descriptions brought me right back. As a fan of thrillers, I found the action scenes fast-paced and gripping.
But what really pulls the reader into the story is Lia, a teen girl struggling with bot ...more

The kind of story you dev ...more
