I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
It's a YA slasher novel. Considering the "meh" reading mood I'm in, it's probably a good thing that I'm going into this not expecting it to be fabulous. I just want it to be decent. Crossing my fingers.
The main character, Makani, used to live in Hawaii with her parents and now lives in Nebraska with her grandmother. Her parents supposedly sent her to watch out for her grandmother, who had a "sleep pruning" incident that resulted in the tip of a neighbor's nose getting cut off (it was later reattached), and to give her some space while they went through a nasty divorce. However, apparently something awful also happened back in Hawaii. I have a feeling it involved someone dying and people at Makani's school thinking she was responsible.
So far we've already had one death in Nebraska, and people are blaming the girl's parents, an unknown boyfriend, and/or Ollie, the loner Makani has a crush on.
