Ricochet, by Julie Gonzalez

This one didn't catch me right at first. And then..whoa. It picked up fast. Through a series of flashbacks and kind of cryptic story lines, Gonzalez tells a story that captured my attention. I think I may have actually hung up on my boyfriend so I could finish what I was doing.

It's about peer pressure that seriously goes too far. Lives change quickly when you succumb to it, and Conner figures that out the hard way.

From the publisher's blurb...

When his best friend is killed in a game with a loaded gun, fifteen-year-old Conner finds his perceptions of himself and his relationships with his family, friends, and other people in his life changed in more profound ways than he could have imagined.
