Harry Hartog's review

Eleanor Jones is an absolute riot as a narrator; dry, blunt and full of moxie. In true wallflower fashion, she over-analyses every social interaction (same) and has such a unique way of catching the curveballs throws at her. The friendship group she (reluctantly at first) forms is clever and dynamic, and the whole mystery is a lot of fun to solve alongside them. Think Paper Towns told from the perspective of Margo with A Good Girl's Guide to Murder vibes and set in suburban Australia - this is a banger of a debut novel, and I cannot recommend it enough! - Molly, Bookseller

Publisher's description

Karen McManus and Holly Jackson meets Fleur Ferris in this fast-paced YA murder mystery.

Eleanor Jones has just started at her ninth high school in less than five years. Since she and her mum are always moving on, Eleanor likes to stay on the outer, to stay invisible. So maybe it's just bad luck that the very first person she talks to at Cooinda Secondary College, Angus Marshall, is stabbed and left for dead the same day. The last message on Angus's phone is from Eleanor Jones.

After being interviewed by the police, Eleanor realises they don't have all the facts and decides to investigate. In trying to understand what happened to Angus, Eleanor inadvertently becomes involved with an eclectic group of fellow students - all of whom have their own reasons to want to solve the mystery.

As they slowly unravel Angus's secrets, Eleanor discovers the true meaning of friendship - and uncovers a danger lurking at the heart of the town . . .
