Keeping secrets ruined her life. But the truth might just kill her.

Piper Woods can't wait for the purgatory of senior year to end. She skirts the fringes of high school like a pro until the morning she finds a notebook with mutilated photographs and a list of student sins. She's sure the book is too gruesome to be true, until pretty, popular Stella dies after a sex-tape goes viral. Everyone's sure it's suicide, but Piper remembers Stella's name from the book and begins to suspect something much worse.

Drowning in secrets she doesn't want to keep, Piper's fears are confirmed when she receives an anonymous text message daring her to make things right. All she needs to do is choose a name, the name of someone who deserves to be punished...


ReviewedbyDaniI thought I’d be into this book based on the synopsis, but I wasn’t.  I really had to push myself to finish it. I like my mystery books and Gone Too Far sounded promising but I just couldn’t connect with the main character, Piper. Piper did things that just got on my nerves, for example she would keep telling her best friend that he needed to go to college even though she knew he would get angry, and then she would wonder why he was mad at her. Piper did this on more than one occasion. Not only did it bother her best friend Manny. To say the least I wasn’t a big fan of the characters in this book. The mystery in this book is the one thing I enjoyed. I didn’t know who owned the notebook, because each character was someone who could have a motive. I will read Natalie Richards other book Six Months Later, because I have it but I’m not sure if I’d recommend this book.

I would give this book a 2.5
