buzz kill by Beth Fantaskey 360 pages
This is a YA novel, and a good one at that. I think I really liked it because a librarian plays such an important part. Town librarian Ms. Parkins is not only Millie Ostermeyers book source, but her confidant. Millie is having quite an exciting senior year. Her nemesis, popular cheerleader Viv had been humiliated by the head football coach, Hollerin' Hank Killdare, at a football game. Of course, it ends up on YouTube with thousands of hits, so when coach Killdare is murdered, Millie would like nothing better than to prove Viv did it. Guided by her favorite Nancy Drew books and assisted by new hunk at school, the elusive Chase, Millie also has to clear the name of her Dad, town mayor and assistant football coach, who is the number one suspect. This book has lots of twists and turns and is really a great mystery and an easy read. Lots of fun!
