Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

Pages: 301

Audience: 12 and up


               When Philip Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude and he treats her like a book he's already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Digby--annoying, brilliant and somehow attractive?--has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago.             When it comes to Digby, Zoe just can't say no. Digby gets her, even though she barely gets herself. But is Digby a hero, or is his manic quest an indication of a desperate attempt to repair his broken family and exercise his own obsessive compulsive tendencies?                A romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, a friendship story where they aren't even sure they like each other--this is a contemporary debut with razor-sharp dialogue, ridiculously funny action, and the most charismatic dynamic duo you've ever met. 

               Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in this story of a wisecracking girl who meets a weird but brilliant boy and their roller-coaster of a semester that’s one part awkward, three parts thrilling, and five parts awesome

My thoughts:

            I haven't read a lot of mystery in the past, but this was amazing! the synopsis sounded intriguing to me, but the story itself is 1,000 times better! When I started reading it I was thinking this was going to be an okay read. I didn't think it would be too different from any other book I have read. I have never dreamed about a book. Never. So when I couldn't read without my eyes closing every two seconds, I decided I should sleep and finish it in the morning. I was maybe 50-60 pages in, not far. I had a dream about Digby and Zoe finding one of the missing girls dead. Once you get to know the characters, then you could kind of picture this dream I had.             Now that i have finished this book and have "lived" through this adventure with Digby and Zoe, I want to go back in. This is a fantastic novel that I would rate 5 Stars. I can't wait to share this book with my friends and with you.

This book debuts on August 4, 2015.
