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?

Officer McMichaels: Thank you for coming in today, Miss Eubanks.
Haddie: I’d do anything to help find the person who took Jackson’s life.
McMichaels: What was your relationship with Jackson Landis?
Haddie: We were friends. I work in the library and helped him write a paper.
McMichaels: Nothing more? Did you harbor any deeper feelings for him?
Haddie: I’d be lying if I said Jackson wasn’t charming and very good-looking. Most any girl on campus would tell you that.
McMichaels: But you never acted on your attraction?
McMichaels: That ring you’re twisting on your finger, is that a purity ring?
Haddie: Yes. I promised my father I’d stay a virgin until marriage.
McMichaels: And if you don’t?
Haddie: I don’t get my trust fund when I graduate.
McMichaels: Is your father a controlling man, Haddie?
Haddie: He means well. He just wants the best for me.
McMichaels: Are you afraid of your dad?
Haddie: I have no reason to be afraid of him.
McMichaels: If you broke your promise of purity, what would he do?
Haddie: I told you—
McMichaels: What we he do to the guy you slept with?
Haddie: What are you saying?
McMichaels: I’m saying, thanks for coming in. You’ve given me a lot to follow up on.
