BUZZ KILL, by Beth Fantaskey

Buzzkill

The story: Millie expected her senior year to be a snoozer–but it turns out to be more of a slayer! When the obnoxious football coach everyone hates mysteriously turns up dead in an equipment shed (which wouldn’t be so bad except for the part where Millie’s dad is the #1 suspect), Millie takes it upon herself to clear her dad using tips and techniques she’s gleaned from reading Nancy Drew mysteries over the years. But somehow, Nancy and her boring boyfriend Ned don’t have all the info Millie needs when it comes to sleuthing, poking her nose in where it doesn’t belong, and maybe even finding a boyfriend of her own–all the while trying to keep one step ahead of someone who’ll stop at nothing to keep their secret safe…not even murder. She’s on her own! And that could be a real buzz kill.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I’m always a fan of a good mystery, and I really liked this one! It would be fun if Millie could solve at least one more before she graduates…
