Superb narration for the #audiobook!
A little romance, a little bff drama, a little mother/daughter tiff, an unbelievably cool aunt and a kick-ass leading lady made this book AMAZING. If you talk to me this month, you're going to hear about this book.

A fast-paced mystery with a fearless and funny woman leading the way! Bexley Squires, an amateur detective, is offered a good chunk of change to help clear the name of a hot celebrity after he's rumored to be linked to the murder of a young woman. How could anyone say no to that?! But she soon finds her investigation has rocked the boat & her life is now in danger. A fantastic FIRST book in a series. I can't wait for more! #netgalley #mystery #arc

All Summer Long | Hope Larson

Librarian‘s review 😝 I read this to see if I should shelve it in Junior or Young Adult since the main character is just barely 13. I decided to go Young Adult because of the friend's older sister, but I won't hesitate to give it to an older Junior reader.

I loved how the author made music come alive in the illustrations. I would love to see this through Austin's eyes, too. I think it would be great for boys to read that perspective as well.

MeganAnn My son was looking at this one at the bookstore a few weeks ago. He had a gift card from Christmas and decided to get The Nameless City instead, but after seeing your review I might have to go back and get it for him. 5mo
heidisreads @MeganAnn Yes! It is worth it. 5mo
