A 3.5-stars for a Y.A book for me.

After her parents' divorce, Zoe Webster moves from Brooklyn to upstate New York, where she meets the weirdly compelling misfit Philip Digby. Soon finds herself in a series of hilarious and dangerous situations as he pulls her into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl, which may be related to his kid sister's disappearance eight years ago.

I got the book from my Owlcrate subscription box three years ago. I started a couple of times but couldn't pass the twenty mark. But this time, I heard a sampler as an audiobook, and I got hooked.

I like how Digby is a good friend and will do anything to help his family and friends, even though he gets them in big trouble most of the time. I know that I would like to pick the other two books of the series, to find out what happened to Digby's sister and how Zoe can help him.
It is an ok Y.A. book, and I believe the mystery is not a straightforward murder; it is a mystery for someone that hasn't read a mystery book yet, or like something light. ( )

Amazing! Great character development. This book is funny and witty. When your looking for a guaranteed laugh come check this book out. You will be trying to solve the mystery right along with them. This book can be suspenseful at times. I'm a fan of the other books in the series as well. Many elements come to form one great book. I recommend. ( )

Sixteen-year-old Zoe Webster still can’t quite believe how her life has changed. After her parents divorced, she and her mom moved from Manhattan to a small town in upstate New York where she does not fit in. She can’t wait to get out and sees mid-year admission to an exclusive private high school in Manhattan as her ticket out. Then she meets Digby, who is on a quest to discover what happened to a high school girl from a wealthy family who disappeared that summer. Digby is reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes in a number of ways—his powers of observation, deductive abilities, and resourcefulness come to mind. Despite initial attempts to resist, Zoe finds herself drawn into Digby’s investigation. Danger, comedy, and high school drama ensue as they search for the missing girl. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which has a definite Veronica Mars vibe, though it is Digby who is far more like Veronica, with his disdain for authority figures and complex plans that aren’t entirely legal, than Zoe. Fans of Veronica Mars, the Keaton School series, or "No One Else Can Have You" are likely to enjoy this book.

Zoey is less than thrilled about her new high school at first. Her parents have divorced. When Digby shows up in her life, things get...interesting. He has a way of finding trouble and not taking no for an answer. Digby's sister was kindapped from their house several years earlier. When a girl goes missing from their high school, Digby is on the trail. And he drags Zoey and Henry into his schemes. Soon there are cops, drug dealers, and a wild limo ride invovled. ( )

3.5 stars

The best way to describe this YA novel is cute and quirky. Filled with fun dialogue between a girl who moves to a new town, a new school, and runs into an unusual teen boy who is always up to no good as he's trying to solve the town's crimes. There are other teens, all different personalities - the good guy next door; the stuck up rich girl no one likes; the nerdy, small for his age boy who's a genius; the mom who tries to reclaim her daughter's affections; the distant and controlling dad the main character wants to please; the annoying stepmother; the weird neighbors; the annoying school security guard. Well, we get the drift some of these characters are cliche, but you know what? It works, and it works well.

It's impossible to grow bored long as there's always something going on. These two don't sit still as they find their ways into trouble, get out with funny finesse, only to jump back into the fire all over again. The mystery isn't terribly strong but the book is a mixture of different genres - YA, humor, mystery, crime, a tiny bit of romance (possibly but not really). Overall it's a fun story, not a serious one. There's serious elements, of course, but it's all treated in a fun manner.

Tromly's debut novel is written well - she makes convincing dialogue stream from the character's mouths and there was some humor that was funny enough to make me snicker aloud. Even if the story has some trademark characters, the story is in no way average, and the way it plays out is unique enough to stand out be remembered as something special.

Why the 3 rating? I typically don't enjoy stories so quirky enough to give a higher rating, just a personal thing, but it's a great book for this type of humor genre, the author approaches it enthusiastically and the characters are easy to love.
