bookshelves: young-adult, 2008
Read in April, 2008

This was billed as a mystery. Set in Britain. Immediately after 16 year old Scarlett’s first kiss, the object of her affection, Dan, mysteriously falls to the floor and dies. Scarlett must transfer out of her posh girls school, to the school her grandmother runs. A mysterious note (which I found implausible) spurs Scarlett to investigate Dan’s death. And right when she discovers an important clue, the novel ends (at 260 pages). Did the publisher forget the last 40 pages? Or is Ms. Henderson writing a series and wants to keep readers riveted? Either way I was incredibly disappointed with this novel. I wasn’t vested enough in Scarlett, (although I was interested in a secondary character and wanted to know more) and I found the mystery element to be completely lacking and not engaging or plausible.

So it’s been awhile since I read a dud. I guess it was time.
