Literature: You Killed Wesley Payne
A 2011 Mystery Fiction/ Young Adult / Hardboiled Detective parody novel by Sean Beaudoin.

Dalton Rev, an amateur Teen Detective transfers to Salt River High, a Wretched Hive where cliques function more like gangs, to solve the murder of Wesley Payne, one of the most popular kids on campus.

Modeling himself after Lexington Cole, a schlocky series of detective novels, Dalton handles armies of Jerk Jocks, psychopathic punk rockers, textbook-racketeering nerds, and a faculty that operates on bribes to get to the bottom of an energy drink-fueled conspiracy. The novel features rather cartoonish imagery and outlandish characters. Its like detective noir sliding with Scott Pilgrim.
