“…but if years of reading true-crime books and watching Dateline have taught me anything, it’s this: it’s always the boyfriend.”
Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery’s never been there, but she’s heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.
The town is picture-perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone’s declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.
Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

Another month has already passed and another late wrap-up for you guys. I really want to get this blog as active as it can be but I’m too lazy.
I’m really frustrated when it comes to my wrap-up lately because I’m not reading as much as I did before. On the bright side, I guess reading something is better than reading nothing. So I’ll make this wrap-up quick.
I’ve read 5 books in the month of April and I’m quite satisfied with that because I finally finally FINALLY finished The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volume 1.
Without further ado, here are all the books that I have read in the month of April…
