This is not your everyday coming-of-age novel...This story was supposed to be about Enid - how she hasn't made a friend in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes into her own once she learns to just be herself-but it isn't. Because when her classmate Elizabeth Zabet McCabe's murdered body is found in the woods, everything changes...and Enid's life is never the same again.
