Police go so far as considering setting a trap to "catch" the main character for questioning. Also, abusive ex-boyfriend stalks a character.

The premise of the book surrounds a murder investigation, where a man was allegedly pushed from the top of a fire tower and fell to his death. He hits his head on a beam on the way down, and some of his injuries from the fall are described post-mortem.

A character learns that their mother (who they haven't seen in a very long time) has recently passed away. The death of a character's father is implied. Another character's father passes away. A character who was a father figure to a main character passes away. None of these deaths occur on-page.

Not necessarily, but because the book is semi-about a murder investigation, two characters are police officers that are well liked by the town

While Kya technically self harms by scratching and pulling at hair I would argue it’s not in the conventional way and is only briefly mentioned.

They don't die first, but one of the two Black characters dies. There's also some "white saviour-y" themes.

Nothing particularly graphic, but several mentions of sex and of characters having (or starting to have) sex. Occasionally this happens on-page, but it is never particularly detailed or erotic. There is also an attempted sexual assault.

It's mentioned that the young men in town have a "game" going to see who will be the first to deflower the main character.
