(From the publisher):
There are times when school psychologist Skye Denison still feels like a fish out of water in Scumble River, the Midwestern hometown to which she reluctantly returned a few years ago. Now, still broke, another car totaled, and her lovelife a minefield of busted relationships, Skye nevertheless keeps her cool when Scumble River becomes a hotbed of malice... and murder.
Sleeping Beauty is dead. Star of the school play, cheerleader, and beauty pageant queen, Lorelei Ingels was the most popular girl in school. But today, no one envies her. While the principal and the police are busy with the politics of this high-profile case, Skye Denison counsels kids and combs for clues... ever more convinced that high school is a truly dangerous place. Finagling her way around crazy school administrators, stupid rules, pushy parents, and teens whose slang needs decoding takes all of Skye's formidable ingenuity. And even ever-optimistic Skye knows that, in this case, finding the killer won't end this tale happily ever after...
