Personal Review

So Jenna, Suzanne, and Claire are debating whether to tell the proper authorities about something that was done to them. Though was it really done to them? The three girls scheme up a plan to get out of Mr Mattero's music class. They accuse him of sexually abusing them. People start to talk and word get's around and soon Mr Mattero's daughter knows. Melody is devastated. She asks herself, why would those girls invent that about her father? Though nobody knows. Did Mr Mattero really do that? As Melody tries to move on, another girl gets involved into the story. Can an accusation become reality.

I honestly loved this book. It really catches the reader's attention. Even though the book is a little too much for the reader, its still a good book. The author had to have take a really good time to find the right words for this book. You have to know what to say when you make books like this. This book has been the most intense book I've ever read. I liked how the author kept leaving you on cliffhangers on what they were going to do to Mr Mattero.
