Testimony, by Anita Shreve

Three senior boys and one freshman girl in a dorm room at an exclusive prepschool = hell for the entire town.
The cover was so good, I really had to pick it up. I enjoyed the book, and thought it well written, and I definitely am not sure what I think should have happened within the story- a lot of interesting moral ambiguity in this.
I was surprised thought that Shreve made it so clear that "the girl was to blame"- I think it made me slightly uncomfortable and I wished she had made Sienna's character less hateful, and I think it would have made for a stronger book.
