The only good things I can say about this book is the cover was appealing and thankfully it was a short book. Normally I like a good dark twisted book but this was just pointless. The story is told mainly from three characters and each of their narrative sounds exactly alike, ignorant and racist. I cannot stand when an author TRIES to have multiple characters tell the story and FAIL at giving each their own voice. The mastermind behind the crime is a bored, spoiled, neglected rich girl who meets her two "monkeys" in detention then tells them that they are going to kidnap a girl, then make money because of it. A bunch of fights, talk about dead rotting animals, defying authority, plotting to kill an old man and his dog, a group shower and many racist remarks about damn near everyone,then one boy gets a conscious (not really) and leaves the group, drops the girl off with the old man they plotted to kill, then he goes off into the woods. The end.
