Girl detective? Not Lulu. That'd be too lame.

Lulu Dark is a sarcastic come back artist, a teen with a keen fashion sense, and best of friends with Daisy and Charlie. Her life is going along pretty much as expected until her favorite purse is purse-napped! Her perfectly tacky knock-off one-of-a-kind purse. This means war.

The first and most obvious suspect is her arch-rival Rachel. Talk about snarky! But that doesn't pan out and Lulu finds herself following increasingly mysterious clues. Who is this 'Sally Hansen' girl that seems to be everywhere? What happened to Berlin (a weird classmate last seen at the site of the crime)? Why are there reports of Lulu hanging out and partying with some snotty society chicks when she can't even stand them?

Throughout the whole tangled mess, Lulu manages to keep her head (mostly) and her good spirits (well, usually). As they scamper from one caper to another, she finds out some things about herself and her friends, especially Charlie. What to do about your best guy friend crushing on you? At first, deny everything, in Lulu's case. Then try and sort out your own feelings on the matter.

This is a fun and witty adventure that teens are sure to enjoy. Some unexpected twists and turns will keep readers on their toes and they are sure to want more of Lulu after the last page is turned. I recommend this book for ages 12 and up. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of Bennett Madison, receptionist extraordinaire.
