I stumbled across this book randomly and really enjoyed it. I loved the chapters each from a different characters point of view. Slowly the mystery starts and you race to put it together first, and then, book two...glad that the story continues as there is so much more to see from these teens who were so happy to be "free" only to realize that emancipated basically means at 15-17 (the age of the characters) you are now a child going to school, having drama and homework AND an adult paying bills, cooking, cleaning and most of all hiding secrets and facing the consequences of your actions.
This book is hard to follow. It is in 3rd person yet it explores 5-7 different perspectives and it all just seems very jumbled. Not put together too well.
