Adam L.'s Review
This book is a fun-loving, light-hearted look into a teenage private investigator's life (a-la Hardy Boys or Scooby Doo.) Lucy Hansen (LuHan) is a tree-hugging, bottle recycling, carbon minimalist who right from the get go wraps you around her finger and doesn't let you go.
Matched with her best friend (and wannabe boyfriend) Holden, they embark on adventure after adventure trying to crack a case he's working on, using an array of crazy gadgets.
Ms. Mahan writes realistic characters who make you want to laugh, cry, and smack your forehead at their antics, as they move through the story, eagerly taking the reader along for the ride.
As one who likes a mystery (but NEVER figures it out till the end), I kept trying to figure out who the bad guy was, only to realize that I was stumped at every turn, all the while laughing at Lucy's increasingly insane antics.
This book is a great read for older teens (Grade 10+), and adults who enjoy a break from the mundane. Ms. Mahan has crafted a book that promises a great adventure, and leaves you waiting to see what happens next.
Eagerly anticipating the next book - need to see if Lucy and Holden become an item! Thanks for a fantastic read. I really enjoyed it.
