Don't forget about our Twelfth Night Celebration this coming Monday.If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period
by Gennifer Choldenko
YA fiction. 217 pp.
For Kirsten McKenna, the world is crumbling. Her parents are barely speaking to each other, and her best friend has come under the spell of the school's queen bee, Brianna. Only Kirsten's younger science-geek sister is on her side.
For Walker Jones, the goal is to survive at the new white private school his mom has sent him to because she thinks he's going to screw up like his cousin. (Walk keeps telling her, "Don't have to worry, Momma. Before I go bad I'll let you know, send a Hallmark card ready-made for the occasion . . . 'On the eve your son messes up.'")
But Walk is a good kid. So is his new friend, Matteo, though no one knows why Matteo will do absolutely anything that hot blond Brianna asks of him.
Then Kirsten discovers something that shakes her and Walk to their cores . . .
"You knew all along," Walk says.
"No I didn't."
"You're lying . . . You found out and then you told the whole world."

I remember nothing about this book. Even the book blurb isn't helping me this time. I apparently Goodreaded it three stars. Perhaps I should downgrade that since it obviously wasn't memorable.
That said, you should probably just check out these other reviews:
