One of our favorite genres in literature right now is 'smart girls getting stuff done.' No longer can we hold back our contempt for the so-called TSTL
('too stupid to live') book heroines, especially in young adult lit.
When Sammy, a New Yorker who doesn't back down from a challenge, discovers that there had been a third 'suicide' in the past two months, and two students have apparently disappeared from campus, her investigation goes into full swing, occasionally putting her in some TSTL
moments but, what the heck, she is a reporter, right?
I thought the author was reaching a bit with a brief TSTL
moment near the end of the book, but otherwise I found this a delightfully breezy, well-crafted book, and a perfect beach read.
