A brief review on a book that had great potential, an interesting cast of characters but for some reason it didn't seem to flow so well. Cheyenne Winters arrives at Sun Valley University to conduct research for her dissertation. She interviews 21 freshmen in a basic 101 course and through these interviews she gets closer to them and is caught in a crisis at the school where students are committing suicide at an alarming rate.
While I thought th characters were well developed and mostly likeable especially Cheyenne, it seemed like there were just too many of them to see how they were all involved. Plus the format of the story which introduces the students by using an essay they wrote as a chapter seemed strange later on. The actual mystery itself also was hard to follow and I at times wondered what was Cheyenne and the detective doing. But at least it was all tied up at the end. A decent book, but be prepared to meet a LOT of people while reading it.
