Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Amateur sleuth Jenny Cain examines her deceased mother's insanity, investigates the bankruptcy of her family's business and reckons with an attempt on her own life in this multilayered, affecting novel. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
YA-- A contemporary, entertaining mystery that begins at the funeral of Jenny's mother, who had been hospitalized for mental illness many years before. An overheard whisper of ``I'm sorry, it was an accident,'' starts Jenny wondering about her father's loss of the family business, his affair with her stepmother, the cause of her mother's illness, and whether it can be inherited. Her sleuthing unravels the answers to these and many more questions in this fast-paced novel, and she reacts believably to the unusual combination of events in her life. Although there are more situations in this mystery/soap opera than would likely happen in real life to any one person, they will grab readers' interest and hold it until every loose end is clarified and resolved. --Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
