You can't get into St Jude's Academy unless you're gifted, talented and supremely rich. New girl Alyssa is on a scholarship and feels like an outsider - she's not even that smart, apart from her photographic memory (and that's cheating, right?). Then one day her room-mate Lily is found floating face down in the lake. It looks like suicide, but, torn apart with guilt and grief, Alyssa is convinced that things aren't as they seem. Soon a jolted memory puts her on the trail of a sinister secret that might hold the clues to Lily's suspicious death. But Alyssa is in too deep, and she's being watched . . .

The first in a brand-new YA series, perfect for fans of The Gallagher Girls

MEDIA REVIEWS
I liked Young, Gifted and Dead right from the first page. The writing - fast and snarky - immediately pulled me in and before I knew it I was hooked. Like Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars, Young, Gifted and Dead is a cracking read that will keep you awake well into the night. * wondrousreads.com *
Young, Gifted and Dead is an impressive debut which explores many contemporary issues whilst delivering a fast-moving, edgy and absorbing whodunit. * Lancashire Evening Post *
Within those pages was a hidden gem * The Guardian Children's Books *
A fun read! * nayusreadingcorner.blogspot.co.uk *
The book is full of suspense and Alyssa is a brilliant and slightly kooky narrator... [the story] is well-constructed and filled with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing * The School Librarian *
But there's nothing predictable about Lucy Carver's characters or her plot... [and what] turns out to be a rattlingly good climax. * crimereview.co.uk *
On the whole, I enjoyed reading Young, Gifted & Dead by Lucy Carver... I would certainly recommend Young, Gifted & Dead, especially for those, like myself, who enjoyed reading and watching Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. * rai29bookreadnreview.blogspot.co.uk *
