Publication Date: January 2, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.
In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.
The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she's next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she's never really noticed before, with the rumored dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.
There's something he isn't telling her. But there's something she's not telling him, either.
Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.

Wow, Just wow! I loved everything about this book. The writing was spot-on and flowed beautifully, making it a can’t-put-it-down read. The characters were the worst in the best way—total mean girls. The mystery was a total shocker. Just an incredible read.
Penelope was a typical mean girl. She was beautiful, smart, an overachiever, and just plain snobby. It was like she couldn’t even help herself. However, she did have more class and morals than her friends, who were so much worse than her.
I loved Cass. He was the quiet, kind of freaky guy with a dubious past. I honestly don’t know what he saw in Penelope, except their chemistry. He seemed really shady at times, was high on the suspect list, as was Penelope, and kept a lot of secrets close, which made him all the more likely as the suspect.
I really liked the bits of being in the mind of the killer. Monica Murphy gives you casual hints inside this POV, driving you insane trying to figure out who it is! This person was really twisted.
I can’t say enough about the writing. It drags you in and makes you feel a part of the story. There were a lot of sad parts, horrifying parts, suspense is of course nonstop. A really good and fun mystery read done perfectly.
