DNF: The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove, by Lauren Kate.

Summary (from Amazon):

A steamy Southern beauty makes one fatal mistake

Natalie Hargrove would kill to be her high school’s Palmetto Princess. But her boyfriend Mike King doesn’t share her dream and risks losing the honor of Palmetto Prince to Natalie’s nemesis, Justin Balmer. So she convinces Mike to help play a prank on Justin. . . one that goes terribly wrong. They tie him to the front of the church after a party—when they arrive the next morning, Justin is dead.

From blackmail to buried desire, dark secrets to darker deeds, Natalie unravels. She never should’ve messed with fate. Fate is the one thing more twisted than Natalie Hargrove.

Cruel Intentions meets Macbeth in this seductive, riveting tale of conscience and consequence.

Applying the read-until-after-the-100th-page rule, I couldn't get into this book, as much as I wanted to. 144 pages later and the only thing interesting that had caught my attention was Natalie leaving Justin at the church.

Of course I want to finish this book, but I feel like now's not the time for me to read this.

Moving on to Surf School, by Laurine Croasdale.
