Trouble seems to follow aspiring detective Jasmine Callihan. Or maybe it's that Jas (who apparently never learned what Curiosity did to the Cat) follows trouble.

All Jas wants to do today is hang out with her pals (and her superfantastico boyfriend, but, shh, don't tell the Thwarter, aka her dad, who's trying to keep her under permanent lockdown).

Overview

Trouble seems to follow aspiring detective Jasmine Callihan. Or maybe it's that Jas (who apparently never learned what Curiosity did to the Cat) follows trouble.

All Jas wants to do today is hang out with her pals (and her superfantastico boyfriend, but, shh, don't tell the Thwarter, aka her dad, who's trying to keep her under permanent lockdown). Simple. Straightforward. But catastrophe is lurking. First Jas stumbles upon a schoolmate's lost purse. Then there's the jewelry store heist, the wrongly accused man, the clueless cops, the seven words that destroy her relationship, and . . . well, before she knows it, Jas has got a lot more than brunch on her plate.

Now it's up to her and her mega-cool crew, Roxy, Polly, and Tom, to catch the thief. It won't be easy—not with Jas's cousin Alyson and her Evil Hench Twin Veronique tagging along for the ride and having to elude the Thwarter with his All-Seeing Eye. Oh, and her heart breaking into a million tiny pieces.

Trying to right wrongs and have brunch with a hot guy shouldn't be this taxing, should it?

Gr 7 Up

This "American manga" by the author of Bad Kitty (2006) and Kitty Kitty (2008, both HarperCollins) continues the story of amateur investigator Jas Callihan as yet another mystery falls into her lap. This time she stumbles across a jewelry store robbery at the mall while avoiding her dad and trying to schedule a date with her boyfriend, Jack. Soon her friends join the chase for the missing diamonds while the date with Jack gets pushed to the back burner yet again. The artwork is lively and fun especially in the conversational asides. Catnipped will be especially appreciated by fans of Jaffe's novels, but it is not necessary to have read them to enjoy this rollicking, fast-paced, and funny mystery.-Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
