Between by Jessica Warman

A mystery novel surrounding the themes of family, friendship and the meaning of what's right and what's wrong.

The structure of the story is a mixture between the present and the past. At first my opinion on this was that i'd rather know what was happening at the present rather than skipping back to the past. However i came to like the idea because it gives us a better understanding of who Liz is while providing us with useful information. 

Liz Valchar is a popular student with money to spend on anything. As the story unfolds we learn of who she is and events that have unfolded from her actions. She has been portrayed with a snooty attitude, someone who gets her own way, and at one point she becomes a character who bullies. For me, i didn't like her. She was this typical high school girl who is popular with her group of friends and known by everyone else, but not necessarily liked by everyone else. You have to read the book to figure out your own opinion of her, but by the end there is understanding and knowledge of who she has become. Almost like her life is an open book for her to view her wrongs and understand what is right.
