Reading Challenge 2015: Book 31 of 52: [sic] by Scott Kelly

Book 31 is [sic] by Scott Kelly , the book set in high school in the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 

Six teens are devoted to a game with one rule: If a player gets tagged, they must change their life within the next fifteen minutes. The better the player, the bigger the change. One might give their car away, or punch the school bully. Another might change identities or sacrifice their virginity. Anything to keep evolving, to avoid fitting into a label or caring about the junk they own. But their quest for enlightenment has taken a rotten final turn – one of the players has murdered the game’s creator, the teen prophet (cult leader?) David Bloom.

Our narrator is being framed for the crime; can he clear his name and discover which of his lifelong friends is the murderer before he takes the fall?

[sic] is a gritty teen murder mystery that delves into the psychology of enlightenment among the criminally dysfunctional. It is a winner of WEBook’s Page2Fame award and a cult classic among its thousands of teen fans on Wattpad, some of whom have actually applied Kelly’s fictional game to their own lives. – Goodreads 

I read this book on wattpad, the non-edited rough draft. The book’s premise held my attention even though I did not like any of the main characters. Unlike some other reviewers I did not like the game, was just not impressed by Eureka or its application by the participants. There is no genius in mayhem or chaos and destruction.
