I found this book very disappointing compared to the rest of the series. I expected more, so much more from Stevie Bell. However, Nate was Nate and I adore the small bean, and David was his usual self (idk why but I have a thing for him- in my defence, he is SMART and HOT).

The only iconic moments in this book were just Nate opening his mouth. I would be a little mad if he wasn't there.

This was my favorite of the series. I liked this mystery the best and it moved along much quicker because it was only one book. My only issue is the reveal at the end was simultaneously so absurd but also pretty predictable.

It sure was nice to hang with Stevie and the gang again! I love how her quirky brain works! I'm pretty sure Nate is my spirit animal

I’ve never read such good representation of anxiety in a book. Props to Maureen Johnston for this xx
