Eighteen-year-old Spencer Sandoval wishes she knew. As rumors swirl that her ex, Ethan, was the driver that fateful night, she can’t bring herself to defend him. And their messy breakup has nothing to do with it – she can’t remember anything from that night, not even what put her in that car with Ethan, Chris, and Tabby Hill, the new loner in school. Was it just a night out that went very wrong? And is it just a coincidence they were all part of Argyle’s esteemed honor roll, the Headmaster’s List? In a place ruled by pedigree and privilege, the answers can only come at a deadly price.
Set against the glitz and glamour of an elite LA private school, Melissa de la Cruz's first YA thriller is an addictive mystery perfect for fans of Gossip Girl and A Good Girl's Guide to Murder.
The Headmaster's List wastes no time getting into the thick of things. From the very first page it grabs your attention and drags you along on a wild ride with second guesses and secrets at every turn.
The only thing I didn't absolutely love about this was the ending. It was very YA Mystery Thriller, which is fine because that's exactly what it is, it just didn't give me anything exciting or different. It was still enjoyable, just average and predictable.
I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA Mystery thrillers but especially to those that enjoyed the Confessions series by James Patterson. The main characters and the storyline all give similar vibes despite the differences in the two stories.
