Jermain, the sixteen-year-old daughter of famous detective parents, can't stop playing detective herself and nosing into other people's business. When she realizes that some of the students and teachers at school are acting very strange, she has to solve the mystery!

Jermaine's friends Andy, a shy but cute computer geek, and Travis, a popular heartbreaker, are her partners in detection―and they both have feelings for her. Between the dangers at school and this unexpected love triangle, what will Jermain do?

This is the first in a new series by Misako Rocks!

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up–With the number of excellent manga titles on the market, it is hard to imagine an audience for this unremarkable story. It is unpolished both in plot and in dialogue. The main character, 17-year-old Jermain, is the daughter of a famous detective who was murdered when she was a child, an event that seems to have had little impact on her, except to create a desire to solve mysteries. With the two cute boys next door, both of whom are interested in her romantically, Jermain takes on solving the murder of a student and band teacher from her high school, only to discover that many of the students are being turned into mindless puppets by a sinister force. But this mystery, dark and serious in nature, takes a backseat to the real questions in Jermain's life: What should she do after she graduates, and which of the boys should she date? The story does wrap up over the course of the volume, and Misako Rocks! makes excellent use of the panels and layout for her likable, if somewhat uneven, art. Overall, there is not enough story here to draw in readers, and the execution is not strong enough to make up for that lack.–Alana Abbott, James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT
