Overview

I So Don't Do Makeup by Barrie Summy

The third title in Barrie Summy's tween mystery series!

What's better than a sleepover? A sleepover with makeovers! Sherry and her friends are having an awesome time with eye shadow, glitter, and more hair products than a salon. But when the girls wake up the next morning with serious skin issues, Sherry is freaked. Someone tampered with her makeup!

It turns out that the mall's cosmetics kiosk—where Junie's cousin Amber works—has had lots of products returned by upset customers. Sherry's determined to get to the bottom of things. After all, she's become a bit of a crime-solving celebrity (well, at least in the spirit world). Ghost academies around the world are impressed by Sherry and her ghost mom's skills.

And if anyone can solve a mystery involving mascara, it's Sherry Holmes Baldwin.

I really didn't expect to like this book. Just by looking at the cover, you think that it's "just another chick-lit for preteenage wannabees" and then by reading the title, that thought is confirmed. The protagonist, Sherry, considers herself a sleuth (her name's short for Sherlock). In this book's case, she is playing detective to catch the horrible person who's been tainting the makeup at her favorite mall kiosk. I hadn't realized that this book was third in a series of Sherry's adventures. However, I read it fine without reading the first two books, so it makes a great stand-alone novel. Most of the plot, as you can expect, was all happy-go-lucky. Sherry, who's thirteen, has a boyfriend, an extensive vocabulary, and an oddly quick thinking process. Yet, she's never worn makeup (before her incidental sleepover), loves glitter, and hates her stepmother. Is she mature, or immature for her age? I'm not quite sure. Also, there was some supernatural elements involved; her mom, who passed away, comes to visit her as a ghost, and Sherry always looks forward to meeting up with her. The book was very fast-paced and fairly entertaining. I went through it in about three hours. Wasn't anything fancy to particularly stick in my mind (heck, I'm already forgetting some of it...but in my defense, it's been a few months since I've read it), and it definitely was sort of painful to read at times (everything in Sherry's life is so disgustingly perfect, which bothered me a bit). All the events were things that would never happen in real life because life never works that accurately. There were almost no surprises in the story, and when there was the teensiest trouble (the face mask caused rashes!), someone would always come to the rescue immediately (of course her stepmom is a health freak who just has soothing cream in her medicine cabinet. Really?). And obviously, the ghost mother thing. Note to author: if you're going to incorporate a ghost in the story, at least make it meaningful and realistic! Sherry's ghost mom only took away from the action! All in all, it wasn't bad. But it's not something that'll haunt/affect me for the rest of my life either. Rating: 7 hearts- A few flaws here and there, but wouldn't mind rereading.

What happens when you have a makeup sleepover party at your house and your friend Junie wakes up in the middle of the night screaming in pain because the night cream she put on before bed is burning her face? The first thing you do, after washing her face, is bring the cream back to the mall store Naked Makeup where you bought it from your friends Lacie and Amber. The next thing you do if figure out why it happened. And, if you're thirteen-year-old Sherry (short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin, you ultimately find out why someone is tampering with the makeup. There is no shortage of suspects. I So Don't Do Makeup is the third book in Barrie Summy's series about Sherry Baldwin, the first two being I So Don't Do Mysteries and I So Don't Do Spooky. In the first two books, Sherry's mother, a police woman who died and is now a member of the Phantom Security Squad of the Academy of Spirits, a group of ghosts who protect humans, helped her solve the mystery. However, her mother can't help her this time. Sherry's on her own. Of course her friends Junie and Brianna help, as do ubercute boyfriend of three months, Josh, and his friend Nick. While solving the mystery Sherry has enough time to go on her first movie date with Josh. Unfortunately her mother (who she can't see but can smell because she smells like coffee) makes an appearance to make sure Sherry's behaving herself, forcing Sherry to miss half the movie. Great first date!!! Sherry also has time to comment on fashion and makeup, her cute blue denim handbag, her grandmother's lack of fashion, and the Janes, a group of girls who think makeup diverts girls' attention from school work. So, what's so fun about the book? First of all, Sherry's mother, who as I said smells like coffee, and especially her grandfather, also deceased, who appears in the form of a bird, are imaginative characters. Second, her friends are great friends. Everyone should have friends like them. Third, the story. It's fun watching Sherry and her brainiac friend Junie, sort out the clues to come up with the answer. I So Don't Do Makeup is a fun read and I highly recommend it. And if you like this series, I also suggest the Lulu Dark mystery series by Bennett Madison.

I loved this book. It is about sherry, a teenage detective who is helping solve a case for the store naked makeup, whose makeup gets contaminated and is ruining the stores reputation. Sherry must find the person who is causing this trouble before the store gets shut down. Also, fyi the review titled "wrong" is a spoiler, so dont read it unless you just want to know the ending

You are totally right. I mean, a twelve year old with a perfect boyfriend...unrealistic. And was it necessary to add the romantic parts ( kissing,flirting,romance )? This was a great mystery but a little annoying. Thanks! ( this message is to the one below me.)

This book is dumb. I think it would have been a better book if Sherry didnt have a perfect boyfriend at age twelve. There was one little scene i thought was especially stupid: sherry and josh are trying to fool the guy from discount mart. Josh tells sherry he has acting experience just because he was an oompa loompa from charlie and the chocolate factory in a KINDERGARTEN play. Sherry gets all mushy because her boyfriend is a child star actor. Like seriously one tiny little play cant automatically make him a good actor! There were also lots of cutesy girly abbreviations and words (like uber in front of everything) . I think the author was trying to sound like a teenager but it was annoying.
