BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
Jackson Landis kept secrets. It’s how he got girls into bed, the grades he wanted, and a reputation for being the life of the party.
But now he’s dead, and no one knows how or why. Especially not the four girls whose secrets he protected. Secrets so scandalous they could cause each girl to lose something valuable. Secrets so dark, someone may have killed for them.
The four girls – a campus drug dealer, an overweight bookworm, a closeted lesbian, and a spoiled princess have one thing in common – they’re terrified the things Jackson knew may not have died with him. As Reggie, Haddie, Val, and Livie try to piece together her own role in Jackson’s death, each girl realizes Jackson had some not-so-pretty skeletons of his own.
Which makes a girl wonder, who really wanted Jackson Landis dead?

INTERVIEW WITH VAL
Officer Ruiz: Val, you need to answer my questions.
Val: Why? All they do is make me look like a criminal.
Officer Ruiz: Are you?
Val: Isn’t that your job? To prove my guilt. Why would I help you with that?
Officer Ruiz: This is getting us nowhere. The longer you stonewall, the longer we sit here.
Val: That’s fine. I have nowhere to go and nothing to do.
Officer Ruiz: But you’re hands are shaking. You need a drink – something stiff, don’t you?
Val: I don’t need alcohol if that’s what you’re asking.
Officer Ruiz: Were you drinking the night Jackson died?
Officer Ruiz: Maybe that’s why you don’t remember anything? You had a black out?
Val: It happens.
Officer Ruiz: Have you had anything to drink today?
Val: A few. But you can’t book me on that. I’m of legal age and didn’t drive anywhere. I’ve done nothing wrong.
Officer Ruiz: Fine. I’m letting you go, but don’t leave town. We’re going to have to talk to you again – when you’re sober.
Val: Then I’ll see you never.
