Death by Bikini by Linda Gerber
New York: Sleuth Speak
This is a great mystery novel for middle school students. It is filled with a murder, spies, CIA and a teen who won’t give up problem solving.
Aphra, a 16 year old teen lives on a tropical island with her dad who runs a resort that rich and famous people escape to-to have privacy. So Aphra is used to living with secrets all the time. But this story has a death that Aphra is sure is a murder—but now her dad is keeping secrets and the plot thickens. The author does a great job at introducing all the possible suspects and setting the plot line. There is plenty of action and suspense before the climax. The book has a little romance but now enough to turn away the guy readers! This is going to be a series so I am off to find Death by Latte!This series is available through Scholastic Books Fairs—so get yourself a copy!
