"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" —Midwest Children's Book Review

Sammy knew that getting to know her new rockstar dad on a cruise would be a little uncomfortable. . . . But when the heiress to a perfume empire disappears from the ship, it turns out everyone's in for a rocky ride.

Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.

Praise for the Sammy Keyes series: “Van Draanen offers such an explosive combination of high-stakes sleuthing, hilarity, and breathlessly paced action that it’s impossible to turn the pages fast enough.” —Kirkus Reviews “There’s no stopping Sammy.”—Publishers Weekly“An intelligent, gutsy, flawed, and utterly likable heroine.”—Booklist"Move over, Nancy Drew—a new sleuth is on the scene.”—Girls’ Life"Think a combination of Carl Hiaasen’s Flush and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books and you’ll be right on target.” —School Library Journal“A high-quality, high-amp mystery series.” —The Horn Book “This funny, clever series is NOT for kids only. I challenge the most seasoned mystery reader to guess ‘who done it.’” —Cozies, Capers, and Crimes “Sammy Keyes comes armed with attitude.” —Orlando Sentinel“Sammy doesn’t find mysteries to solve—they find her.” —Arizona Republic“Humor, romance and adventure; this story is an absolute blast.” —Chicago Tribune “If you haven’t met Sammy Keyes yet, now is the time.” —Children’s Literature
