read by Khristine Hvam
rating –   B+ / crime  (YA?)

This might have been more interesting in print or ebook format because much of the narrative is told via emails and text messages and just listening the reader doesn’t get the visual impression.  But Hvam is a good narrator and the book moved along smoothly.

Amelia Baron,  the 15-year old,  very bright and creative daughter of a very hard working attorney mom, goes to an upscale private school in Brooklyn.     There she has to deal with seriously malicious clique, but does that, at least for awhile, with the help of a best friend, Sylvia who is apparently more concerned about boys more than with Amelia’s problems.

So when Amelia’s body is found dead from a fall off the top of one of the buildings,  it is assumed to be the result of suicide.  >>>> MORE (no spoilers)>>>>
