Putting the dead in deadline

To Bee or not to Bee? When the widely disliked Honeywell Stingers football coach is found murdered, 17-year-old Millie is determined to investigate. She is chasing a lead for the school newspaper - and looking to clear her father, the assistant coach, and prime suspect.

 

Millie's partner is gorgeous, smart—and keeping secrets

Millie joins forces with her mysterious classmate Chase who seems to want to help her even while covering up secrets of his own.

 

Shes starting to get a reputation…without any of the benefits.

Drama—and bodies—pile up around Millie and she chases clues, snuggles Baxter the so-ugly-hes-adorable bassett hound, and storms out of the worlds most awkward school dance/memorial mash-up. At least she gets to eat a lot of pie.

 

Best-selling author Beth Fantaskeys funny, fast-paced blend of Clueless and Nancy Drew is a suspenseful page-turner that is the best time a reader can have with buried weapons, chicken clocks, and a boy who only watches gloomy movies…but somehow makes Millie smile. Bee-lieve it.

Synopsis:

In this fresh and funny teen mystery, seventeen-year-old Millie joins forces with her classmate, gorgeous but mysterious Chase Albright, to try to find out who murdered Coach Killdare.

Synopsis:

A baseball-playing teen's life of privilege is turned upside down in this exciting novel by Carl Deuker, veteran writer of sports fiction.

Synopsis:

Like the game of baseball, life is quirky and unpredictable, as Shane Hunter discovers in the spring of his sophomore year. Suddenly and without warning his life of privilege is turned upside down. And just as suddenly, life begins to seem utterly without fairness or purpose to him.

Exciting, well-written sports scenes transport readers right into the stands while complex issues engage their hearts and minds. For here is a novel of loss, of morality, and of the rare, redemptive power of baseball. Can speaking the truth really determine lives? Just how does one accept, move on, and begin doing the right thing?

Synopsis:

Shane Hunter had everything going for him—a well-to-do family, lots of friends, and a coveted position as the star pitcher on his high school baseball team. Then, in the spring of his sophomore year, a terrible tragedy turns his life of privilege upside down. With everything around him in shambles, Shane’s not sure he wants to pitch ever again. But maybe the game he once loved could be the thing that saves him.
