A fun little adventure with a sparky heroine. Nancy Drew meets Demon Headmaster, manga-style.
This book is very awesome! This is a girl name Jermain always wanted to be a detective just like her dad when he pass away. Her school has a problem. Everyone was been acting weird in her school! if you want to find out more please read this book! And if you want to be a detective this is a good book for u to read if you want to become one! ^^
This book was really good! My first manga I red. ^_^ The anime was very different it was kind if like western anime you could say? But good story line! Im getting the next one for sure!
A fun manga, though a bit predictable. It seems to take place outside of Japan... Possibly America? The names are all common names in America and they mention state colleges.
I wish there was more detective-ness and less romance-y-ness, and the mystery was way over the top, but all in all not a bad read.
An amateurish version of a Cody Banks story mixed with Nancy Drew Notebooks. Mostly hormones, less brain.
