15 year old Amelia kills herself by leaping off the roof of her school, shortly after her mother is called to pick her up because she has been suspended for plagiarism. Her mother, an attorney, knows both of these acts are not like Amelia, and sets out to find the real reason that Amelia jumped...or was she really pushed? I liked this book and found it unpredictable. The one nuisance that I noticed was the large amount of misspelled words in the book that distracted me from the first I just let it go, but after the 20th or 30th misspelled word I was really questioning the talent of the proofreader. Aside from that, it's a great read.
