Someone recommended this book to me. She said it reminded her of Veronica Mars - and she was right. It had a lot in common with the TV series! I really enjoyed reading it - especially because I figured out whodunit early on. It was an off-hand thought that I never would have guessed would actually be right! It made me proud. If you need a good mystery, check this one out!

From Goodreads:
How far would you go for love, beauty, and jealousy?

When Nicole Castro, the most beautiful girl in her wealthy New Jersey high school, is splashed with acid on the left side of her perfect face, the whole world takes notice. But quiet loner Jay Nazarro does more than that--he decides to find out who did it. Jay understands how it feels to be treated like a freak, and he also has a secret: He's a brilliant hacker. But the deeper he digs, the more danger he's in--and the more he falls for Nicole. Too bad everyone is turning into a suspect, including Nicole herself.

Award-winning author Paul Griffin has written a high-stakes, soulful mystery about the meaning--and dangers--of love and beauty.
