Everybody picks on him, making jokes at his expense - until Rob Haynes shows up.
Rob, a transfer student with charisma to spare, immediately becomes the undisputed leader of the senior class. And he has plans for Simon. Rob's mission: To turn the snivelling Simon Glass from total freak to would-be prom king.
But as Simon rises to the top of the social ranks, he shows a new confidence and a devious side that the power-hungry Rob did not anticipate. And when Simon Glass uncovers a dangerous secret, events suddenly darken.
The end result being disquieting, chilling ...and brutal.

Review by Kassilem
This is a chilling book. It was recommend for Endgame which was also a chilling book so it makes sense. There’s no happy ending. This is about the demons everyone has inside themselves. Its set in high-school with high-school boys but the idea itself extends pretty far. The formatting was interesting, giving plenty of foreshadowing. We’re not really told what happens after that fatal night but by the quotes from characters in the beginning of each chapter we’re giving glimpses. It was well written for young adult. While I’m certainly not invested in any of these characters, with the exception of perhaps Young, this story will haunt me for weeks to come. It was a thought provoking and powerful book.
