(Deadly Cool #2)
Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper’s brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went… a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH’s resident body finder, I’m stuck trying to prove that Sydney’s death wasn’t suicide.
I’m starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos…
Well, i didn’t laugh my pants off while reading Social Suicide. However, the fun was constant throughout the book. I chuckled time after time! I didn’t even try to guess who the culprit was because i’d rather enjoy Hartley‘s wacky investigation on the murder. and I did.
Sam‘s a standout in this sequel. I lover her deadpans! and Chase… Ha! Even i will be as clumsy and assuming as Hartley was when it came to him. C’mon, Gemma Halliday, give me more Chase swoon moments! but i already love Hartley’s hit-and-miss with him. =)
Both Deadly Cool and Social Suicide are equally good, but i enjoyed this sequel a little bit more. Just a little bit, because up until now, i could not remove from my memory the hilarious bedroom scene from book 1. LOL
