My rating:

About the book:
Sixteen year old Kait Lenox has a reputation as the weird girl in her high school, mostly because of her ex-best friend turned mean popular girl, Ariel, but maybe it has a little to do with the fact that Kait has a hobby crashing funerals. At one of these, Kait is outted by the most popular guy in school, Ethan Ripley. Yet, instead of humiliating her for all the world to see, he asks for her help, and Kait finds herself entangled in a murder mystery. Not only is the thrill of the mystery exciting, but more importantly Ethan knows her name! A little sleuthing is well worth that

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this really cute and simple young adult mystery. It was a really easy going mystery book with a little romance for good measure.

I really liked Kait the main character. She is a social outcast who likes to read books watch movies and crash funerals. Not strange at all just a regular teenage girl with a kind of unusual hobby that leads Kait right in to a investigation of a murder. Kait is such a sweet person and she is determent to find out the truth and of course it does not hurt that the most popular guy in her high school is her partner in their quest for the truth.

I also really like Kait´s side kick Ethan. He is really down to earth and a really nice guy despite his status as the most popular guy in school, even though he thought Kait did drugs or was related to drugs in some ways but hey doesn´t everyone believe in gossip every once in a while?

This was such a cute and fun book and I really enjoyed it a lot. I would definitely recommend it to others especially if you like a good mystery!
