You have all heard the saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover,” but how often is this cliché true about a novel? Most the time we do judge a book by its cover as to whether we want to read it or not. We judge its genre by the cover, but sometimes we get an amazing story the cover just doesn’t reveal to us. Even a book blurb can mislead or only open a crack into the true story. This holds for Isosceles by Scott R. Caseley.

The author hooks  the reader by saying, “The novel takes the reader on a journey through the thirteen-year friendship between Sean McIntyre and Trey Goodsby up to the tragic end of Trey’s life, and then goes into what effect his death has on Sean and those closest to the two boys.”

Okay, so we know there is a tragic death before reading the book. However, if you look closer you realize the story isn’t about how Trey died, but instead, “Why he did it.” In fact, after reading a few of author Scott R. Caseley’s recent interviews, you find the author himself even classifies his novel as a “WHYHEDID” instead of a “WHODONEIT” novel.

But what is Isosceles about? The novel is a coming of age story, but it is more than that. When Sean McIntyre finds his best friend Trey Goodsby dead and almost completely submerged in a bathtub filled with bloody water, he is now faced with the question…”Why?” It’s hard to believe Trey accidentally died, but why would he take his own life? Sean and anyone who has ever known Trey would have traded places with him in a heartbeat. After all, Trey is the bad boy all girls love and want. He lived life with a carefree will many wish they could have. Sean is determined to find out the answers, but to do so…he will have to go back in time to the day he first met Trey and this is where the real story really begins.
