South Hills Sidekicks: Uninvited by Megan Summers and Leah Spiegel
South Hills Sidekicks by writing duo Megan Summers and Leah Spiegel follows a group of teenagers on the brink of starting their senior year of school. Alley suspects that this year will be the same as the rest, and dreads going to school and hanging out with a bunch of girls who are wealthier than she is … but that all changes with Kirsten, a girl in her “friendly” clique, goes missing. Names are thrown out as suspects, but the leading man in the polls is Shane, typical cool-guy-on-campus, who is cocky and full of himself. But is he really the man responsible? The cops seem uninterested so she and the rest of her gang start doing a little sleuthing of their own, but that makes things worse for their cause because now the police are starting to pay attention, but not in the way that they imagined. Will they ever find out what happened to Kirsten? Or will they end up just like her if they don’t stop digging around?
I found South Hills Sidekicks to be quite fun. I honestly didn’t expect much from this book in the beginning because I felt like it was definitely out of my age range and that it wouldn’t necessarily apply to me, and yes, whilst that is true since it takes place in high school, I still found it entertaining. Not only is it full of mystery and intrigue … but this book is actually funny (which is something that I didn’t expect). I would definitely recommend this book to a younger crowd and I feel like the authors have a solid book on their hands.
