Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Reviewed from Advanced Reading Copy. Due to be published August 2015.
This is like The Spellman Files for teens--Zoe, the main character, is quirky and drawn into investigations that she doesn't know much about. Zoe is caught in the middle of a custody battle between her mom and dad, and then an odd guy named Philip shows up at her house. He's weird, wears a suit all the time, acts brilliant, and wants Zoe's help investigating the disappearance of a teenage girl from the town.
The coincidences are unbelievable and the teens get them into a world of trouble, but at least luck is on their side. Good thing since the police, drug runners, and gun-holding crazies are involved, too.
It's a quick, quirky read and laugh-out-loud funny.
