Alisa Cox | 4 comments I’m looking for a YA short book series. There were only three books in this series, but all them mostly had the same characters. I don’t remember the title or author, but there was a tagline on the first book that went a little like “What’s a smart girl like _______ doing with a jerk like Josh” I think Josh was pretty tech savvy and he and what’s her name would solve mysteries together. They ended up getting involved romantically (eventually). This is driving me crazy, please help.

Alisa Cox | 4 comments Just wanted to add that I found a copy of this book and, well it's very much of its time. If you are interested in an absurd plot about a sixteen year old genius computer programmer and DOS operating systems of the 1980's then this is for you. If you're on a nostalgic kick as I was it's fantastically fun and really silly. Great for a few giggles.
