Summary: Drawing Conclusions or Drafting Disaster? Other than harboring a somewhat obsessive fondness for Crispix and completely swearing-off boys after a bad date (don't ask), sixteen-year-old Kate Carter is about as ordinary as they come, except for her two notable talents: art and sarcasm. After an introduction to forensic sketching in her elective art class, Kate discovers a third and most unexpected gift: criminal profiling. Her photo-quality sketch helps the police catch a wanted murderer and earns her celebrity status in South Woodhaven Falls. But when that murderer appears to be using his friends to exact revenge, Kate goes from local hero to possible target. Will she manage to survive? Will life ever be normal again? And will local news anchor Ted Deffle ever stop sending her flowers?

The Book In 3 Words: Funny, Mystery, Imaginative

Rad Review: I loved this comedic tale about Kate and her story. I sped through it in a day after borrowing from my friend. It was quite well written and it doesn't take long to get into the spunky topic of the book. Kate and her sarcasm light up the book in a clean, and fun humorous way. With the mystery of John X on her hands  her life gets very exciting and fun to follow. 

If you are looking for a romantic comedy, this ain't it. It's all comedy and mystery. But it's not dripping in romance. There are some inklings of romance to add a little flavor, but don't get your hopes up. Overall a delightful tale that is for sure worth an hour or two of your time.
