About this title


Unable to believe it when a guidance counselor is murdered and her boyfriend is accused, Ashlyn Brennan becomes determined to prove that Drew is innocent, until she stumbles across a death certificate with her own name on it. Reprint.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-With a theme similar to Caroline Cooney's The Face on the Milk Carton (Bantam, 1990), Deadly Deception is a suspenseful page-turner that preteens will relish. When popular high school counselor Judy Rothlis is killed, it's up to Ashlyn to not only clear her boyfriend, Drew, of the crime, but also to find the true killer. With a checkered past of abusive parents and drug rehabilitation, Drew is the prime suspect...and the last one to see Mrs. Rothlis alive. Searching for clues, Ashlyn uncovers devastating news about her own past when she finds a death certificate with her name on it. Unveiling this chilling web of lies and deceit leads her to the shocking revelation that she was kidnapped as a child. An unsolved murder, mistaken identity, a poisoning, and a cast of wealthy characters add up to a true winner for all mystery lovers. While some of the plot elements are predictable, a few of the twists are truly surprising. The narrative is a quick read, with believable dialogue. Characterization is uneven, but enough information is given to clue readers in on possible suspects and motives. Well-crafted and perfectly timed chapter endings lead anxious readers right to the next chapter's revelations. Haynes's writing may not rival Joan Lowery Nixon's, but her ability to capture readers' interests is keen. This is one whodunit YAs will be dying to read.
