If you're looking for a sassy, confident & fun female detective, I've got your girl. Lulu Dark, girl sleuth, solves the case in Lulu Dark Can See Through Walls by Bennett Madison. While hanging out at a Halo City club with her friends, Lulu's favorite purse - a hideous Kate Spade knock-off - is stolen. Lulu wants it back, since not only is it her favorite purse, but it contains the phone number of Alfie Romeo, the totally hot lead singer of Many Handsomes.
First, Lulu thinks her arch-nemesis Rachel has taken her purse to get back at her for some not-so-nice remarks Lulu made about her mother. But soon it becomes evident that the theft of Lulu's purse is part of something much bigger - and more mysterious. What happened to Lulu's classmate Berlin Silver after she left the club that night? And who is the mysterious Sally Hansen? And what's up with Lulu's friend Charlie - surely he's not in love with her?
This is one of those mysteries that has hints at the end, and you kind of know what's coming, but you just can't wrap your head around it and put it all together. Once you've met Lulu Dark, you'll want to hang out with her some more - watch for her second adventure, Lulu Dark and the Summer of the Fox, coming in May!

The sequel is fab! If you like the first one, you'll probably love the second!
