All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab

Summary:(from goodreads) Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.
Review: This book is one of those that has been on my wishlist for a really long time. I am glad that i finally got around to reading it because I really liked it. The premise of uncovering the mystery surrounding Carly's death was an interesting premise. The plot was well paced and as pieces of the puzzle started to get revealed I became more and more addicted to it. The ending was surprising and everything came together really well. I really liked Neilly and Audrey. They were both very well written and easy to connect with. I thought the way that all the characters were connected was really interesting and the many flashback scenes in the first half, really allows the reader to know about the history of this group of students. I did think that at some points the characters seemed older than they really were, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.  Overall, this was a pretty good mystery type story.
