Brendan Frye is a loner, someone who knows all the angles but has chosen to stay on the outside. When the girl he loves turns up dead, he is determined to find the "who" and "why" and plunges into the dark and dangerous social strata of rich girl Laura, intimidating Tug, drug-addled Dode, seductive Kara, and the ominous Pin. But who can he really trust? These are the ingredients of Brick, a gritty and provocative thriller that critics describe as "a clever, twist-filled whodunit!" (Claudia Puig, USA Today)

Smart, stylized teen whodunit with violence and drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Brick is a highly stylized crime drama, wherein a teen detective tries to solve a case involving murder and cocaine. There is some strong violence, mostly punching and fighting, though characters are stabbed and shot (with blood shown). Teen pregnancy is discussed. A secondary character is a drug dealer, and though a "brick" of cocaine is shown, characters are not seen using drugs or high on drugs.
