Driving home from a bonfire party, eighteen-year-old John Hawk crashes, killing his girlfriend, Riley. Bullied and tormented at school, his guilty conscience crushing him, John transfers to a school in a little town on the banks of the Mississippi River in eastern Iowa, where he attracts the eye of the principal’s daughter, Megan Jones. Though he’s reluctant, she convinces him to be her prom date. The morning after prom, Principal Jones reports Megan missing. Four days later, her body is recovered from the river, and John becomes the prime suspect in her death, the police accusing him of rape and murder.

Charley Cotton, Megan’s best friend, knows that Megan had a secret, but she doesn’t trust John because of his past. John is desperate to avoid adding to the shame and guilt he carries for Riley’s death—it’s destroying his life. With Charley’s help, he learns that others in Megan’s life have a motive to keep her quiet. But every effort they make to uncover the truth edges them closer to a desperate murderer with everything to lose.

Genre: YA Paranormal, Mystery

The murder of Millroad Catholic Academy’s resident genius, Aaron Nguyen, shuts down student life at the boarding school in rural North Carolina…for about a week. With the resilience of youth, the student body bounces back, and the memory of murder is nothing but a streamer of caution tape fluttering in the breeze. Unfortunately for them, Aaron’s spirit has some resilience as well.

Hoping for spontaneous romantic combustion with her ghost-seeing best friend Hiroki, school gossip journalist Georgia Collins agrees to help bring Aaron’s murderers to justice and set the vengeful spirit free…but it’s not quite the close encounter she’s hoping for.

WebsWebs
By Lily Stuart
Publisher: I. M. Books
Published: September 2014
ISBN: 978-0992996130
ASIN: B00MR86B2E
Genre: YA realistic fiction – crime – mystery
Formats Available For Review: Print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in print), pdf, epub, mobi, kindle

Webs opens with teenager, LILY, facing a gun just before it is fired at her. The story then picks up with her attacker’s account of the events leading on from this and LILY’S diary recounting events leading up to it, starting three months earlier. The two narratives gradually converge.

Alongside her own life and problems – her best friend MELEZZ, and her unreliability, her arch-rival for heartthrob, MATT’S, attentions – JAS, and her bitchery, and school with its academic impossibilities and ridiculous characters, Lily’s irreverent teenager’s diary tells of her mother’s foray into the world of internet dating and how it leads LILY to uncover a murderer. Told in turn by LILY and the anonymous murderer – her attacker from the opening scene, their combined story examines different perceptions of love, obsession and relationships, and between them they tell the story of The Russian roulette murder.

Webs is the first in the Lily Stuart teen detective series.

YA Mystery – Jesus Jackson

Jesus JacksonJesus Jackson
By James Ryan Daley
Publisher: The Poisoned Pencil Publication
ISBN: 9781929345069
Published: September 2014
Genre: YA Mystery
Formats Available For Review: pdf

Jonathan Stiles is a 14 year-old atheist who is coping with his first day at the fervently religious St. Soren’s Academy when his older brother Ryan is found dead at the bottom of a ravine behind the school. As his world begins to crumble, Jonathan meets an eccentric stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance to Jesus Christ (except for his white linen leisure suit and sparkling gold chains). Jesus Jackson, as he calls himself, claims to be a Spiritual Contractor (he builds gods for people: 100% faith guaranteed) and he offers to provide Jonathan with some faith of his own. When Jonathan declines, Jesus Jackson urges him to reconsider, and then hints that Ryan s death may not have been an accident after all.

Inspired by Jesus Jackson, Jonathan teams up with Henry, his new best friend at St. Soren s, to investigate Ryan s death. But when the boys find evidence pointing to Alistair St. Claire (the new captain of the football team and Ryan’s closest friend) the police refuse to listen, and Jonathan is forced to take matters into his own hands.

Jonathan goes on to battle sanctimonious school psychologists, overzealous administrators, and a cavalry of Christian classmates on his quest to discover the truth about Ryan’s death and about God, high school, and the meaning of life, while he’s at it. But he keeps getting distracted by Cassie St. Claire Alistair s quirky, beautiful, agnostic younger sister who holds the keys to the answers that Jonathan is searching for, but who also makes him wonder if he should be searching for them at all.
