You Killed Wesley Payne, by Sean Beaudoin is about a 17 year old detective named Dalton Rev, who transfers to a tough and dangerous school filled with gangs and cliques. Dalton is on a case where he must solve a students death here at Salt River High, whose body was found hanging down on a goal post at the school football field. Dalton interrogates all the cliques and goes through a lot of difficulty and frustration finding out who was responsible for the murder of Wesley Payne.
In my opinion, this book was overall just decent. It's a good book and I think that you will like it if you are into murder and mystery, but I personally didn't have too much fun reading it. The context and whole plot of the book seemed confusing and weird. The beginning of the book was pretty fun, but as I progressed through the book, it just wasn't that interesting. It's up to you whether you want to read it or not! Be my guest.
