I really enjoyed "The Amanda Project" by Amanda Valentino and Melissa Kantor. It was a little confusing at the beginning while the book laid the groundwork, but the story quickly picked up. I am excitedly awaiting the next in this series. This is a good read for anyone who enjoys mysteries or teen intrigue.

Book Blurb for The Amanda Project

Mysterious, charismatic, and one of a kind—the only way to find Amanda is to think like Amanda.

When enigmatic freshman Amanda Valentino arrived at Endeavor High, she chose three people—Callie, Hal, and Nia—to guide her through the choppy waters of her new school. Except she didn't tell them about each other. When Amanda leaves, the three must reluctantly work together to figure out why. But once they start piecing together the cryptic clues that Amanda herself is leaving for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew about her is false. The more they dig, the mystery of where—and who—Amanda is deepens.
