review 1: Noah’s friend Will is one of the ‘less dead’, an outcast with no family, no home, a gay teen on the outside. No one will really care for a nobody in a pauper’s grave once the headlines about his murder have passed. But Noah won’t have it. He’ll put it all on the line, his freedom, his family, even his life to acknowledge the bright light that was his friend, and maybe stop the next murder.
review 2: Not my favorite April Lurie book, but still a delight to read (if murder mysteries can be described as delightful!) I particularly love that it's set in Austin, so I know almost every scene's setting quite well...I wouldn't recommend that a person start with this one if they've never read Lurie (start with Dylan Fontaine or Brothers, Boyfriends, & Other
... more Criminal Minds), but I'd still recommend it to anyone who likes the murder mystery thing, particularly some of my former 8th graders...I wish it would have been out when I had a couple of them in class three years ago, they'd have LOVED it! less
