I think children would probably like this book, but I had some problems with it.
Although this book was rather exciting, I thought the language was really trite. For example, "girlfriend" and "cool beans" were about the only things Jackie could say. Sarah spent a lot of time biting her thumbnail. And Lacey whimpered every other s...more
I am quite a bit out of the typical age range for this book as its target audience would be the younger YA scene but let me tell y...more
The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer was a fun, thrilling read. The three girls Sarah, Lacey, and Jackie have great personalities that make for a very hilarious read. One of my favorite lines in the book is at the beginning, when the girls are ontheirway to the police station and Jackie remarks how it;s a good thing they're innocent because "Orange is definitely not [her] color."
As someone who grew up reading Nancy Drew I love a little bit of mystery in everything I rea...more

I was part of the book tour back in August and shortly after that, I was contacted by the author asking if I would like to read and review the book. Of course I said yes, although it took me a while to finish it with all the things that's happened in my life.
Anyway, the book, I enjoyed reading the adventures of the Super Spies. I have never read any Nancy Drew books (boohoo), but I have read one of those Sweet Valley mysteries and I do love watching crime...more
