Slide by Jill Hathaway
I am so excited that Slide by Jill Hathaway was released into the wild this week. Slide is an awesome debut mystery from an Iowa author, who we will be coming to visit the Cedar Rapids Public Library in July!
Slide is narrated by Vee Bell, a high school student with the unique ability to slide into others and see through their eyes. When she witnesses a murder, she goes full on Veronica Mars and starts to investigate with the help of her power to slide. I stayed up all night finishing this book – couldn’t put it down from the moment I started. Part mystery, it also combines elements of fantasy with realistic dialogue/characters and genuinely surprised me at the end. I loved Vee as she brought to mind my favorite kind of detective – teen girls ala Nancy Drew. I’ve been looking for something to fill my Veronica Mars void since I finished the DVDs and Slide was perfect – but left me wanting more! Luckily for all of us, Jill Hathaway is writing a sequel – so be on the lookout for that in the future.
Get in line for your copy through our catalog now – read it before the author comes in July, and stop in the YA area of the library to get a Slide bookmark signed by Jill Hathaway – get one before they are gone!
Jill is also hosting an awesome iPod + book giveaway on her blog – so check that out and send her a picture of where you read at to be entered to win.
