    Wow...who knew boarding school was so exciting and fraught with mystery and peril? Well, I guess everyone who read the books or saw the movies of Harry Potter. Bt this school has no magic or wizards, just the usual high school angst cranked up to 11 because when you live with your peers, there's no getting away from your unrequited crushes, your mistakes...or the realization that comes too late that you JUST SHOULD HAVE SAID SOMETHING!

    During the first week of her first year at boarding school, Devon felt like an outsider until one night's secret adventure had her spending stolen time with "Hutch," the guy who would soon become Mr. Popularity and move out of her orbit. But that was 2 years ago...and now Hutch, the golden boy of campus is dead of an apparent suicide. It didn't matter that Hutch would never OD on oxy, at least according to the people who new him best...that was the verdict that the school and his family, as much as they tried to hush up the news, was pushing. But Devon, even though they had never really kept up, knew that the connection she had forged with Hutch those years ago was a true one, and she was not buying the story. So, using her position as a Peer Counselor - a pilot program which would help her get in to Stanford - Devon commences her talks with anyone close to Hutch who needs assistance with their grief in order to find out the truth of what really happened that horrible evening when a wonderful guy lost his life too young. But who will help Devon with her secret grief?

    A wonderful story that contains mystery, scarily casual misuse of prescription drugs, and a romance that might have bloomed make Margaux Froley's first book in the Keaton School series a must read.

    Devon has always been on the outside at the boarding school she attends. She decides to sign up as a peer counselor to add some extra padding to her college application. She thinks it will be an easy job but a student called Hutch commits suicide and Devon soon learns many secrets from the kids she is counselling. She does know Hutch as she had a fun night with him years ago when she first came to the school. What she knows from that night and what she hears leads her to believe Hutch would never kill himself and she believes he was murdered. Now she tries to track down who did it and why.

    I really enjoyed this book as it really is a mystery. Most people believe Hutch did it to himself and doubt Devon cause after all she really wasn't one of his friends. She tries her best to track down his history these last few years at school and she really finds out more than she ever would have known about him. She also knows the Hutch that noone else knew the one who told her things he didn't anyone else. I like seeing the moments between Devon and Hutch in flashbacks. You get to see a different side of her and a different side to Hutch. Devon does manage to get a few friends from her counselling job even if some of them don't believe her about Hutch and want her to mind her own business. She never backs down from her belief and often gets into bad situations. This story does draw you in cause with all you hear about teens it is quite believable and you never really know what is going to happen to the end.
