Description

Preparing to survive a typical day of being Digby's friend wasn't that different from preparing to survive the Apocalypse. When Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude, he's smart, and he doesn't take 'no' for an answer. But before she knows it, Digby has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a girl from their high school. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago. Peppered with razor-sharp dialogue, this is a romance that is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, and a debut novel you won't forget.

Reviews

Reads like a combination of Veronica Mars and The Breakfast Club ... a screwball mystery with powerful crossover appeal. Publishers Weekly Fast-talking, suit-wearing Digby is an exasperating teenage Sherlock-sharply observant, impatient with social niceties, and unafraid of authority figures ... Fans of Veronica Mars and Elementary will find much to like here ... Zoe's sarcastic first-person narration is fresh and funny...an offbeat and entertaining caper. Kirkus A fast-paced story...Readers will find a sharply drawn character in the irrepressible Zoe, who's as dubious about Digby's methods as she is curious about whether or not she can live up to his daredevilry.
