Summary: When 16-year-old Scarlett Wakefield transfers from St. Tabby’s to Wakefield Hall Collegiate, she is relieved that no one knows her dark, haunting secret. A few months ago, Scarlett was invited to an elite party with a guest list full of the hottest names in British society, including Dan McAndrew. Before the party, Scarlett had only imagined what it would be like to have her first kiss with Dan, but on the penthouse terrace, Dan leaned in close and she no longer had to wonder. Their kiss was beautiful and perfect and magical, and then . . . Dan McAndrew took his last breath as she held him in her arms. No one knows how or why Dan died, and everyone at St. Tabby’s believes Scarlett had something to do with it. But now that she’s safely hidden away at Wakefield Hall, Scarlett would rather forget that it ever happened. Only she can’t. Especially when she receives an anonymous note that will set her on the path to clearing her name and finding out what really happened to the first and last boy she kissed.

My Thoughts: Another series I’m really late to read. We are introduced to Scarlett who isn’t exactly popular but when she gets an offer to a popular party, she’s so excited to go! She also has a crush on a boy named Dan who is also from the popular crowd.

She’s been admiring him from afar for a while so when he shows interest in her, she can’t be more excited.

But things don’t go as planned and she ends up killing him, kinda.  Wow, that was crazy! The whole thing was crazy. She was kind of naive though. She dropped her friends and everything blew up!

As this is the first book in the series, I just felt like it was ok. I wasn’t eagerly excited after reading it but I will continue the story. It was another one of those “just ok” books for me. I do want to finish the rest and see what happens though.

Overall: Just ok. Am hoping to enjoy the rest of the series more. This was a very fast read for me though.

Cover: I like how she is kissing him. Its a sweet cover.

What I'd Give It:
