Overview

Now in paperback! Lily has read every Nancy Drew book in the library. She’s great at spying clues and keeping secrets. She has to be. She has secrets of her own that no one can ever find out.
When summer brings lying, stealing Tinny Bridges to town, Lily must depend on her own wits to keep ahead of this sly newcomer. Tinny takes candy from the general store and blames Lily. She tries to steal Lily’s friends and even her father’s affection. Worst of all, she seems to know Lily’s secret. When Tinny goes missing, only Lily has an idea what happened to her. But for Lily, finding Tinny means confronting her hidden past.
With its taut-pacing and lyrical writing, Andrea Beaty’s critically acclaimed mystery has been hailed as “the kind of satisfying read that summer is all about” (School Library Journal). Praise for Cicada Summer
 
“One part memory, one part mystery, and a generous dose of atmosphere make this the kind of satisfying read that Summer Reading is all about.” —School Library Journal
 
“Beaty weaves elements from Lily’s favorite Nancy Drew stories together with a moving picture of a child . . .” —Kirkus
 
“Written with clarity and fine attention to craft, this accessible novel reveals the secret in Lily’s past just as she reaches out to solve the mystery.” —Booklist

I think this is one of the best books I have ever read considering I have read it 4 times and almost rated it 5 stars. It is a book filled with mystery and questions that make you want to read on and on. So i reccomend this book for anyone and give credit to Andrea Beaty.

An excellent book for the young adult reader. As a teacher, I like to read a book before I recommend it to my students. Secrets of the Cicada Summer was a quick read and it kept my interest throughout the story. Great writing, Miss Beaty.
