Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody. Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut. It's written all over the "slut stall" in the girls' bathroom: "Alice had sex in exchange for math test answers" and "Alice got an abortion last semester." After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice - and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself.

Surprised but I liked it!

I took this book knowing it was probably targeted for young adults but I wanted something light for a change from my usual thrillers. This book kept me interested. Good story with great narrators - I especially enjoyed how it kept changing characters telling the story from their perspectives.

Excellent use of multiple narrators

Thoughtful if somewhat "Lite" look at the viciousness of teenage gossip. The use of multiple narrators was excellent.

Might be too old for this.

Seemed too childish to be about high schools. Plot wasn't exciting at all. Characters were annoying. Ending was boring.

the ending could've been better

I really like the story and all, very catchy and interesting but the ending was quite disappointing. the story ended and nobody found out the truth, Alice's name wasn't cleared from all the falseness.i feel like everyone should have found the truth and the others should have suffered consequences.
