On the latest episode of Book Riot’s Hey YA Podcast, host Tirzah Price recommends two funny madcap YA mysteries for your TBR!
We don’t have print copies of these titles in the CA Library collection, but we do have eBook and audiobook copies available in the Sora digital reading app!
Murder on a School Night by Kate Weston — After a high school party ends in the death of a popular girl who was suffocated with a menstrual cup, amateur sleuths Kelly and Annie must stop a menstrual murderer when a second student turns up dead with a sanitary pad across the eyes. “A little bit Heathers, a little bit Booksmart, this British import is a campy, never-too-serious skewering of faux feminism that embraces the ups and downs of friendship” (Booklist).
Trouble Is A Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly — After her parents’ divorce, Zoe Webster moves from Brooklyn to upstate New York where she meets the weirdly compelling misfit Philip Digby, and soon finds herself in a series of hilarious and dangerous situations as he pulls her into his investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl which may be related to the disappearance of his kid sister eight years ago. “With elements of mystery, romance, and problem novels, Tromly’s debut aims to please a wide variety of readers” (School Library Journal).
