Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Minerva Clark is a typical thirteen-year-old girl: she hates her hair, she hates her legs (which somehow manage to look both too fat and too skinny at the same time), and don't get her started on her gigantor bootie. On top of all this puberty, she's being raised by three older brothers, none of whom really get her. But when a fateful encounter with a lightning storm rewires her sense of self, Minerva Clark becomes anything but a typical teen. With a brazen new attitude and a nose for trouble, Minerva soon finds herself drawn inexplicably to the scene of a murder and determined to track down the killer. If only all the clues weren't pointing so close to someone she knows...

Synopsis:

Minerva is a typical 13-year-old girl until a fateful encounter with a lightning storm rewires her sense of self. With a brazen new attitude and a nose for trouble, she finds herself determined to track down a murderer.

This book-or this series actually, is amazing for being written in Portland! Karen Karbo lists and makes you feel like your there and makes you feel proud that you know exactly what she's talking about.
