But is it just the victim...or the murderer they know as well?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8-10

The privileged, African-American Duke twins of Atlanta are back. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Sydney and Lauren should be focusing on planning their holiday bash, but instead they are preoccupied with attempting to clear their father's name in the murder case of Lauren's boyfriend's brother. All of their detective work has to be on the sly because by proving their father's innocence they just may be exposing their stepfather's activities. Is Altimus's used car business lucrative enough to keep the girls swathed in Gucci and Prada or is he involved in illegal activities? Uncovering the truth is not going to be easy, nor without consequences, for the sisters. The mystery element sets this story apart from other novels in the overdone subgenre of books about wealthy youth, and, even though it's a sequel, it stands on its own.-Robyn Zaneski, New York Public Library
