Faith Flores is a bit of an atypical protagonist insofar as she’s somewhat rough around the edges. Of course, considering her circumstances, she’s a remarkably well-adjusted adolescent. Knowing the bare minimum about her father, really raising herself—while doing her best to take care of her addled, addicted mother—Faith’s occasional avoidance of silly social graces seems just about right. Above-average intelligence and a freaky-fast mind also, understandably, contribute to her curtness.

*I received a copy of this novel from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

This was not as dark as the first book, and in some ways that made it better. The mystery was easier to read because while it was still focused around a drug, it wasn't quite as personal this time around.

The events were obviously well researched, the science made sense and seemed well founded. The conclusion here was a little fast, just like in book one, but seemed a little more plausible.

I liked that Faith

Code Red is the second book of Janie Chodosh's Faith Flores Science Mysteries. Faith Flores is a problem-solving, case-cracking girl from Philly. She never lets anything get in her way of finding out the truth, but when she gets an internship in Santa Fe, difficulties occur.

Faith attempts to handle a love triangle, family drama, and her mysterious father...all while investigating the murder of a girl she met at a party. She finds out that the death is linked to a recent drug identified as liquid

I know this is meant to be a YA novel but it's worth a read no matter how old you are. Faith is terrific= it's great to see a teen using science to solve/fight crime. So smart! This is a very engaging novel; I didn't read the first one but I'll definitely look for Chodosh again. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

Code Red: Faith Flores Mysteries (Book #2) by Janie Chodosh (Poisoned Pen Press, 2017, 250 pp, $10.95/7.99) tells a story about a precocious nearly seventeen year old girl from North Philly who's invited to spend a summer internship at the prestigious Salazar Center for Plant Genomics in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I don't often read YA (young adult) fiction any longer, and I don't remember what prompted me to order this title. However, as I read into this account first-person account of a gifted, ner ...more

This second book builds on Death Spiral, but adds so much more. It continues to involve science in ways that readers will understand because it’s woven in so well and explained clearly. Not only does it allow Faith to grow both intellectually and emotionally, it presents her with several huge life challenges. While few teen girls will ever face as many as Faith does, lots will have to deal with being smart, liking science, figuring out screwed-up families or complicated/confusing attraction to t ...more

In an Oyster Shell – An interesting YA mystery.

The Pearls – The mystery was the best part of the story. The mystery was multi-faceted. There was the mystery of Faith’s family. The mystery of the conflict of the modified chiles. Then there was the mystery of the liquid gold. The mysteries all together made for an intriguing story.

The setting was well defined and made you feel like you were there. You get to learn a lot about New Mexico in this story. I like stories that transport the reader and t
