Book Review

by Michele Jaffe

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult

RT Rating

Jasmine, the heroine of Jaffe's first YA book, is prone to disaster. Her relaxing, end-of-summer break at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas with her family is disrupted by a series of mysterious events, and Jas tries to find out who's sending her threatening notes, why a starlet is crying in the bathroom and if hottie
Jack is trying to kill or date her.

Jaffe's writing is spunky, and Jas is adorable. But the author veers from
the heart of the novel. She should
have stuck more closely to the mystery and not let observation bog down the story. (Jan., 288 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 0060781084, ages 12 and up, HC)
