Description

Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller's Day Off in this story of a wisecracking girl who meets a weird but brilliant boy and their roller-coaster of a semester that's one part awkward, three parts thrilling, and five parts awesome. When Philip Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude and he treats her like a book he's already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Digby-annoying, brilliant and somehow...attractive? Digby-has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago. When it comes to Digby, Zoe just can't say no. Digby gets her, even though she barely gets herself. But is Digby a hero, or is his manic quest an indication of a desperate attempt to repair his broken family and exercise his own obsessive compulsive tendencies? A romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, a friendship story where they aren't even sure they like each other-this is a contemporary debut with razor-sharp dialogue, ridiculously funny action, and the most charismatic dynamic duo you've ever met.

Professional reviews

"Zoe is marking time until she can transfer to a private school. Then Philip Digby shows up. Digby is bent on discovering the truth behind his sister's kidnapping long ago and its connection to a recent girl's disappearance. Narrator Kathleen McInerney's portrayal of Digby makes apparent his charisma, brash disrespect for rules, and acute observations. Listeners will understand why he draws Zoe into dangerous, daring situations as McInerney shows Zoe's transformation from a priggish and dubious girl to a witty young woman who holds her own as Digby's accomplice. Overall, McInerney's rendering of their charged, dynamic dialogue brings out the humor and the intensity of darker moments as well as the suspense. Fingers crossed this dynamic duo returns. S.W.
