345 pages
Realistic fiction/mystery for "new adults"

Reviewed by Kayla, grade 10

Heather Wells is trying to leave her old life behind. She used to be a teen pop-idol! However, now she works in a university residence hall and rents a room from her ex-fiancĂ©’s brother. One day, however, her whole life gets a little mixed up when a student winds up dead at the bottom of an elevator shaft. There has been a lot of elevator surfing going on lately, so police almost immediately rule it as an accident. But Heather does not believe that this girl died elevator surfing, especially when more students end up dead. She intends to get to the bottom of her mystery and gets into more trouble along the way! Heather must watch her step or she could end up in deep trouble!

This book started out slowly, but when the first student died it started to pick up its pace. It ended up being an action-packed and hilarious book! There was also some mixed-up romance, which just made the story more snappy! I recommend this book to others, especially if you like mysteries. Heather Wells is a spunkier, more sarcastic, and more relatable Nancy Drew. I cannot wait to read the other books in the series!

I rate this book a 5.
