Fue un hombre pelirrojo tirado en el suelo del cuarto de los padres de lan, con un brazo en alto como si se hubiera caído de la cama. Tenía el brazo torcido y la parte de atrás de la cabeza ensangrentada.
"Respira," me digo a mí misma mientras tamborileo con las uñas en la mesa del comedor. "No pienses en eso. Si te pones a recordarlo, el oficial Wells se puede dar cuenta. Él no sabe nada y no te ha venido a buscar a tí." Hago que mis dedos paren.
When an adult neighbor is brutally murdered during a high-school house party, everyone in school seems to have an idea who did it, but no one will go to the police. Jen was there and saw the body and she has her own ideas about who is responsible. As a reporter for the school TV show, she decides to try and uncover the truth and discover if a classmate's increasingly violent behavior is to blame. When she and others begin digging too deeply, violence flares in the small community. Finally, Jen is forced to take a stand, one that may cost her more than she could imagine.
