When Chloe moves to a small town and goes through the trials of making friends, she learns of the deaths of two high school students. One was an athlete, one was what the other students referred to as a nerd. The more she learns, the more she is convinced that these two deaths were neither accident or suicide. And, as with all good mysteries, you don't know until the end who the guilty parties are or exactly how the clues will unravel.
This is the first book in the series Chloe and Levesque. The EMS Library currently has the first four books. If you read and enjoy this book, the second in the series is titled Double-Cross.

Kellen is living in the year 2097, after an airborne virus nearly caused man's extinction. Women now rule the world, and poverty, crime, war, and hunger have nearly been eliminated. When a rumored outbreak of another virus threatens many lives, and in particular Kellen's outcast father, he risks everything in a desperate race to warn of impending danger. And, in doing so, uncovers information so frightening that the world may never be the same.
This is a book that EMS will place on their young adult shelf next year, but a great read for incoming 8th graders who love futuristic suspense. Click here to see a book trailer of Epitaph Road.
