"I came to this school to get into Columbia, but instead I'm morning the death of my childhood neighbor. She had dreams, and she truly could've gotten them. She was a beautiful, intelligent, funny, kind 14-year-old that didn't go so much as a chance." x x x x Five girls from the suburbs of Georgia get accepted into a prestigious private school in San Francisco. The Eastwood School. Known for treating the Fine Arts with just as much love and attention as the sports, which is why it's so famous. Plus, it's run by the famous humanitarian/philosopher, Samuel B. Grady. But then one of the girls, Estella Callisto, turns up murdered (which was made to look like a suicide) after the first Freshman Friday of the year. All eyes go to her friends, Annalise Song, Mason Wright, Lola Grey, and Evelyn Stein. But since each girl was each other's alibi, they begin their own investigation over who killed Essie Callisto.
