This was a weird mystery, but not in the way I like my weird. The book is about a pair of mismatched teen detectives, Benny and Virginia, who try to find the truth when a popular cheerleader jumps off a bridge during a football game. It’s so hard to talk about this book. There were moments where I liked it, then some weird thing would happen and it just put me off it. It’s like a nice cookie with raisins sprinkled throughout. Except, here the raisins are things like a football player jacking off in his car while holding an antique Confederate rifle. Why?!? Is is meant to be funny? I honestly don’t know.
I mostly finished the book because I love to know whodunit. The solution here ends up being very complicated the further you get. There’s locker room cameras and pervy teachers and hypnotism, basically everything. There is supposed to be a second book in this series, but I’m probably going to give it a hard pass.
