Fifteen-year-old Jasmine feels very alone. She’s never known her father, her mother is always working and her best friend Tess has moved away. Channelling all her energy into trying to be like the gorgeous and fortunate Sadie, Jasmine’s own life begins to seem like a pale imitation of Sadie’s. When one day Jasmine’s father’s face appears on Crimewatch, Jasmine welcomes the chance to put her detective skills into practise, but finds herself drawn into a world of mystery, danger and intrigue, where she stands to uncover more than she ever dreamed of.
I won this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.
I have read many crime/mystery novels but it is safe to say that I haven’t read one like this in a long time.
It is mystery that is aimed at younger teens and it is engaging from the very start.
When Jasmine’s Dad contacts her out of the blue, she finds herself on an adventure around the world to try and uncover the killer of a girl her age, and to find out what part her father played in it.
I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. The way that the first chapter played out definitely grabbed my attention and meant that I managed to read the whole thing in a couple of hours.
