Step aside Nancy Drew, make way for Hartley Featherstone! Deadly cool is a murder mystery book, and while it had its darker aspects, with the bodies piling up around our dedicated teenage detective, it managed to be fun! Think twice before you leave a trail of bread crumbs behind you because, oh boy, is Hartley Featherstone intent on following those clues to solve a mystery!

I much prefer a darker and scary murder mystery book, but sometimes a quick and lighter read is always refreshing. Although some parts of the story were predictable, it kept me guessing who the killer was, and I can’t say that I was so much surprised as disappointed that it was… you know…? Really?
I think the author could have done better, but it's okay, I guess we can’t overload the newbie detective. After all, there is a Social Suicide coming up!

All in all, this was an entertaining book, with fairly amounts of fun!
Favorite scene: When Hartley is hidden under Bad Boy’s bed and he starts undressing… hilarious!

Wendy Darling I'm glad you enjoyed this one--I thought it was super fun, too!

Tânia The downside is I'm gonna have to wait for the second book to be released.
