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 shattered by a family tragedy in this exciting novel by Carl Deuker, veteran writer of sports fiction.

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. 

Synopsis:

Will Cody save clea before it's too late? QB of the varsity football team. Passing grades in all his classes. Dating the hottest—and smartest—girl at school. Summer job paying more than minimum wage. Things in Cody's world seem to be going pretty well. Until, that is, his girlfriend, Clea, is sent off to boarding school across the country, and a torn ACL ends his high school football career. But bad things come in threes—or in Cody's case, sixes and twelves—and the worst is yet to come. While limping through town one day, Cody sees a newspaper headline: "Local Girl Missing." Clea, now his ex, has disappeared from her boarding school in Vermont, and the only clue is a letter she sent to Cody the morning of her disappearance. With that as his guide, Cody sets out to find out what happened. Once in Vermont, he unearths the town's secrets—and finds out that football isn't the only thing he's good at.

This is another edge-of-your-seat suspense novel by the New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-nominated author of Down the Rabbit Hole.
