Review: Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn

Book: Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn (Sarah Miller)
Series or Stand-Alone: Book #1, Midvale Academy
Preview on Google Books
Description: The narrator of Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn tells us the story of her beloved Gid, an adorably clueless boy who flukes his way into one of the fanciest New England prep schools. Gideons more than a little out of his league at Midvale, especially compared to Cullen and Nicholas, his charming but morally ambiguous roommates. They terrorize Gideon as they initiate him with a bet over Gids borderline virginity, and the feisty, sexy Molly McGarry. Gideon is torn - he wants to prove himself, but he also wants Pilar Benitez-Jones, the most beautiful girl hes ever seen. Hooking up with Molly might be possible, but winning Pilar would be legendary. On the other hand, Gideon actually likes Molly. Its all incredibly confusing and intoxicating. And one hysterically funny girl is savoring Gideons every thought. But who is she?
I read this book a few months ago after I read about it on amazon. I read the beginning of the book on google books and then ordered myself a copy offline, because most bookstores don't carry it in store. I concept of the book sounded unique and the format of the book was very entertaining. The story is laid out as a mystery, where the reader has to try and determine who the narrator is. For the most part, I really enjoyed this book. Some parts were a bit predictable - especially who the narrator turns out to be. I don't want to give anything away, but you see that coming a mile away. However, all in all the book was a fun and interesting read.
