Anna Fan (emeraldaphoenix) | 5 comments The book I want to find is about a murder mystery at a boarding school. A popular girl was killed. Her friend is suspected of killing her. I read it in 2011 or 2012. I can't remember title or author. It seems to not be talked about. I searched on the internet for it and couldn't find a book fitting the exact description. The main character, the one being framed for the popular girl's death, is in a dorm with the twin sister of someone the popular girls' bullying has put her in an asylum. The twin sister is getting revenge on the main character by sneaking in dead popular girls' belongings to make her find it and freak out. At one point, it was the dead girl's perfume. It is part of a series of maybe two or three books. I think the author was female. Can't remember the cover art or character names.

I suddenly remembered more. The dead popular girl's death was ruled a suicide by police because they found pills in her hand. The twin sister getting revenge was hiding in dead girl's room when she came in from having fun with her friends. The twin had put a gun to her head and told her to take the pills or she would shoot her. So she did. The boarding school is for kids from wealthy families.
