Ask Me, by Kimberly Pauley
It's a clever idea and creates lots of interesting twists to the plot. I like the setting as well. But the sociopath storyline left me cold. Compared to the fascinating ramifications of a teen who only speaks the truth, a homicidal crazy simply wasn't very interesting. And, while foreshadowing is largely absent, I had figured out whodunnit about fifty pages before Aria did and that just made the rest of the book a chore. So, a great concept but the execution was a disappointment.
