Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: Dark, compelling, and touching a deep contemporary nerve, A Density of Souls is a richly plotted novel about four high school friends in present day New Orleans tom apart by envy, passion, and a secret murder.Meredith, Brandon, Greg, and Stephen are New Orleans friends whose allegiances diverge sharply upon entrance into high school. Brandon and Greg gain popularity as football jocks and Meredith joins the bulimic in-crowd, while Stephen becomes the outcast of the once close group, and is targeted as gay by a school that viciously mocks him. Then two violent deaths disrupt their lives -- an accident and suicide.Five years later the friends are drawn back together by a sinister and violent turn of events. And it turns out that the suicide is actually a murder. As the true story emerges other secrets begin to unravel and the cruelties of high school life take on a new significance.A Density of Souls is a remarkable first novel. Powerful, with an utterly compelling narrative, it looks hard into the darker side of high school life and the tortured psyche of young teenagers. A stunning debut.
