Overview

Jennie McGrady is quickly gaining a reputation as a amateur sleuth, and it isn't going unnoticed by the local media. But the glamour of publicity is getting old, and Jennie would love to disappear into the crowd—especially when a plea from Courtney leaves her out in the cold.

Courtney Evans is the typical wild sixteen-year-old: weird hair, strange friends, and an attitude to boot. But underneath the hype Jennie finds a compassionate, hurting friend who is running scared. When Courtney disappears, the police suggest she ran away, but Jennie's instincts tell her this mystery has the sickly smell of drugs and money surrounding it.

Gavin Winslow is determined to break into the world of journalism, and he thinks Jennie is his ticket in. A lead story on Portland's very own Nancy Drew would get him the career attention he needs, but is his interest in Jennie more than professional?

Nothing to gain and everything to lose…

When sixteen-year-old Courtney, the daughter of a pharmacist, calls for help, Jennie sets off to solve a mystery involving drugs, sports, and competition.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-In this, the sixth book in the series, Jennie investigates the disappearance and attempted murder of a classmate. When eccentric but kindhearted Courtney calls Jennie to ask for help, the sleuth (shades of Nancy Drew) arranges a meeting with her, only to find out that Courtney has been badly beaten and is in a coma. The reason and perpetrator are made clear when Jennie eventually solves the mystery. The characters confront a surprising array of social ills-homelessness, drugs, anorexia, child abuse, and battery-and one has to wonder if Rushford didn't construct the plot simply to reflect as many contemporary problems as possible. The story line does reflect some of the grim situations faced by today's teens, but the frequency suggested here is unrealistic. The heroine is a mentally strong character and exhibits independence, smarts, and perseverance. This book hinges greatly on previous installments and should only be purchased if other entries in the series are popular.Carrie A. Guarria, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
