Genre: YA, Mystery
Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool.
But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.
You know, normally I would skate right on over a book like this, but let's be honest. The cover alone of Deadly Cool is awesome. Then, there's a premise that promises a whole mess of dark humour, which is totally my thing in a nutshell. Do I think there will be a lot of depth to this one? Heck no, but I sure as heck think I'm in for some rip-roaring entertainment! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
