- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 May #1
When student reporter Millie finds the dead body of the football team's coach, she is determined to beat rival reporter Vivienne to the story, especially since Viv keeps writing articles implicating Millie's dad: the assistant coach, mayor, and now lead suspect. Coach Killdare wasn't popular, though, and Millie's suspects encompass everyone from the pushover principal to the furious former quarterback. One of these suspects, current QB and handsome enigma Chase, also seems to be investigating, despite Millie's attempts to shake him off. Unconventional Millie is beleaguered by the impossible standards set by her idol, Nancy Drew, who did everything with class and manners. Examples: Nancy Drew wouldn't tell off a police officer, question suspects while wearing a stained T-shirt, or eat pie with her hands while in the company of a cute boy. That Millie doesâand with enthusiasmâis what makes her so delightful. Fantaskey's funny murder mystery, with multiple red herrings and suspenseful cliff-hangers, is a breeze to read, but watching Millie steamroll those in her way as she solves the murder is the real treat.
