"Afraid of being kicked out of their elite boarding school, Alex and Glenn hide the messy details about what really happened the day their friend Thomas drowned. But Glenn suspects that Miss Dovecott, their teacher (and Alex's longtime crush), knows their secret. As Glenn pressures Alex into a plan to get Miss Dovecott fired, Alex must choose between his love for his teacher and his desire to hide the ugly truth. With complicated characters and themes of friendship and guilt, this haunting, suspenseful novel will appeal to readers who like the sophisticated style of John Knowles' classic A Separate Peace and the emotional intensity of John Green's Looking for Alaska."

Reminiscent of Crime and Punishment (though much more concise and not quite as memorable). If you enjoy the complexity of the human psyche then I would definitely give this a whirl. Written in journal form from the protagonists POV.
