really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult

This reminded me a lot of The Body of Christopher Creed, a favorite read-again teen mystery. None of the characters are perfect, but they're all worth knowing. The narrator has her own blind spots, which add to the suspense. The hero here is not the young man who is the hate crime victim but his neglectful long-time friend, a girl who has pulled into herself for so long it takes something this tragic to pull her back out into the world--but when it does, watch out! And it's nice to get a good happy ending once in awhile.
