Book Review: Prep School Confidential

TITLE: Prep School Confidential
Book 1 in a new series
AUTHOR: Kara Taylor
PUBLISHED: July 2013
GENRE: Mystery
PREMISE: When her roommate is murdered, new girl Anne goes on the case...
MY REVIEW: Can I just say I'm so happy teen mysteries are a thing again? For awhile it seemed like no one was writing them accept for Sara Shepard with the Pretty Little Liars series and its eighty million red herrings. As a mystery fan this made me sad. But now a few new teen mystery series have gotten started and this makes me very happy.
This is the latest teen sleuth series to start up. I didn't love everything going on it (the oh-so-obvious love triangle, the mean girl stereotyping, etc.) but there was far more good then bad. The mystery was good and even with the roommate's murderer found, there's a larger mystery to be solved. It's all very Veronica Mars and as a huge fan of Veronica Mars, I approve.
So I liked this one and look forward to the next book, coming out in the Spring of 2014.
WHO SHOULD READ: Veronica Mars fans, Nancy Drew fans, The Liar Society series fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five plaid skirts

  1. You're totally right! I hadn't noticed, but there really aren't much in the way of teen mysteries these days.
