  • Corinna “Corey” Nguyen’s life seems perfectly average for a closeted bisexual whiz kid with her eyes on college and a budding romance with her friend Kate. Sixteen and navigating senior year with her tight-knit group of best friends through crushes, breakups, and pregnancy scares, Corey mistakenly believes that running for valedictorian and choosing the right college are the worst of her worries. That is, until prom night, when she’s left alone and in shock, hiding inside a diner restroom, the only witness to a multiple homicide.

    With graduation looming, the pressure is on for Corey to identify the killer and ensure that the crime that has changed her life forever will not go unpunished.

      I managed to get through this in one go, but it took me all night. I had to know what happened. Basically, you get to see this gruesome murder right off the bat, but then the book goes back in time to before it happened and only gives glimpses of what happens after. It goes back and forth between before and after to build you up to like the characters (including the victims) but you know what their fate is going to be, so it’s deeply emotional and sad. The conclusion was satisfying without being predictable, and if I read it again I know I’d find all sorts of hints I missed the first time around. A really good murder mystery and coming-out story. 5 stars.

      Very relatable characters, well written prose, and a captivating story. For a first book, I was extremely impressed by the overall quality of Out of Order. A solid mystery with strong female characters, each of whom is unique, flawed, and interesting. Good job!!
