Product description

Review

The book pulled me into it so hard that I forgot everything going on around me, I just needed to solve the murder with Pip.--PopSugar

This is a great, twisty read for fans of YA. --Book Riot

A taut, compulsively readable, elegantly plotted thriller.--The Guardian

The perfect nail-biting mystery. --Natasha Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A fun, gripping, and skillfully constructed novel of suspense. I loved Pip--her relatable quirks, her inventive investigative approach, and her willingness to step outside of her safe world in search of the truth." --Emily Arsenault, author of All the Pretty Things

Dark, dangerous and intricately plotted--my heart literally pounded. --Laura Steven, author of The Exact Opposite of Okay

So so clever. --Savannah Brown, author of The Truth About Keeping Secrets

"Well-executed.... A treat for mystery readers who enjoy being kept in suspense." --Kirkus Reviews

Legions of fans of true crime podcasts may therefore flock to this one, and they're unlikely to be disappointed. --Bulletin

Fans of true crime will be hooked by the hunt for a killer, but there's more to this Guide than just a whodunit. It's a story of families, community and the ways a crisis can turn them against one another in the blink of an eye. --BookPage

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic Nancy Drew-like mystery that is for ALL mystery lovers, not just teenagers!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 June 2019
Holly Jackson pulls no punches! I loved this book. The characters and the plot had my stomach in knots. One minute I was all tense, and then I was crying. It had this air about it that sucked me in. This has great plot development, with thrilling mini climaxes that had me hooked.

The story is narrated through two styles; Pip writing in her project logbook, and what is unfolding in real time. This worked because one delivered the plot’s progression by discovering new information, character interactions and so on. The other (through the logbook) provided a diary feel, and acted like a murder board, where the reader gets to contemplate all the facts and evidence Pip has gathered. And oh boy did I! Everyone was a suspect at some point or another… It genuinely felt like I was there with Pip, trying to figure out what was essential to solving the case. I loved this personal tone, because it had me completely invested.

I admired Pip immensely because of her tenacity, intelligence and how much she cared. And I cared so much for Ravi and Sal. Ravi’s humorous personality provided entertainment, and his partnership with Pip gave that dream team vibe that were capable of anything. The fact that these characters were so likeable, it made the story even better.

I’d say my only qualm with this, is there wasn’t a hardcover available. That’s hardly the author or the story’s fault, though. I felt the font used for the logbook chapters was a bit challenging at times, and could be impossible to read for those who struggle with small font (see photos)

Overall, I read this in three days and it’s getting all 5 stars.
This is a well plotted and cleverly written story. I can’t quite believe it is a debut novel, never mind it being classified as a young adult book. This has honestly bested what would be considered as adult and mature mystery/thrillers, with its suspense, characters and overall plot. I’d recommend it to everyone – not just teenagers. If your favourite genre is mysteries and thrillers, this is worth reading because it’s currently my favourite mystery/thriller of 2019. Well done Holly Jackson, and thank you so much for writing this excellent book. I cannot wait to see what is coming next from this fantastic author!
