Kiss Me, Kill Me by Lauren Henderson

Scarlett regrets more than anything the two wishes she made at New Year's, instead of resolutions. She'd like to have boobs and a kiss from her crush Dan McAndrew.

Her first wish comes true and makes gymnastics even harder to balance.

Her second wish also might come true when she's invited to a party only the popular kids are going to--abandoning her two best friends.

At the party she does get her second wish--she and Dan kiss. And then he dies.

Scarlett's sent to her grandmother's school--Wakefield Academy. And while she struggles to fit into a more academic school, she prays no one learns her secret.

But secrets can follow you anywhere. And when a note appears in her desk saying "It's not your fault", Scarlett is determined to catch who put it there and find out the truth to Dan's death.

Scarlett is a likable character and I enjoyed reading this first in 3. Her point of view is looking back over events, so there is some foreshadowing and her regrets over what happens comes off the page in waves. There are some anxious moments throughout, but mostly the mystery of how Dan died and how she was involved are center to the story. I can't wait to read the next one!
