18607200 Very Bad Things

Author: Susan McBride
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: October 14, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Katie never thought she'd be the girl with the popular boyfriend. She also never thought he would cheat on her-but the proof is in the photo that people at their boarding school can't stop talking about. Mark swears he doesn't remember anything. But Rose, the girl in the photo, is missing, and Mark is in big trouble. Because it looks like Rose isn't just gone…she's dead.

Maybe Mark was stupid, but that doesn't mean he's a killer.

Katie needs to find out what really happened, and her digging turns up more than she bargained for, not just about Mark but about someone she loves like a sister: Tessa, her best friend. At Whitney Prep, it's easy to keep secrets…especially the cold-blooded kind.
Why I'm Excited:

This book is combining two of my favorite things: YA mysteries and a prep school setting. This sounds intriguing and this cover is giving me awesome American Beauty vibes. Delacorte Press is putting out some amazing-sounding titles this year. I hope they put some of these fall titles up on EW. October seems so far away.
