A quick read is always needed when someone is on the go. And this one is just the adventure needed when say sitting in an office bench.
The adventure, or rather the story, starts exactly as it is happening. Written in first person narrative in the voice of Daisy Giordano, Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez; revolves around Nightshade, a town where strange happenings tend to occur. For Daisy and the rest of the inhabitants of Nightshade, these happenings are just part of everyday life; until a girl is found dead with unknown causes and the "it" girl, Samantha Devereaux, comes in Nightshade High sporting an outrageous new look. Things are not starting out good. Especially when Daisy's mom, a psychic who works on helping solve crimes, comes home in need of help on the case of the dead girl.
Trust this book to bring you back in that cozy Nancy Drew drive with a mystery that will remind you of Scooby-Doo. Although, there won't be any monster chase with multiple doors to imagine, there is quite a romance and your cliche of highschool dances to read and picture.
