Scarlett Undercover by Jennifer Latham
pub: Little Brown
genre: YA Mystery Thriller
A voice-driven mystery perfect for fans of Veronica Mars.
Meet Scarlett, a smart, sarcastic, kick-butt, Muslim American heroine, ready to take on crime in her hometown of Las Almas. When a new case finds the private eye caught up in a centuries-old battle of evil genies and ancient curses, Scarlett discovers that her own family secrets may have more to do with the situation than she thinks — and that cracking the case could lead to solving her father’s murder.
Jennifer Latham delivers a compelling story and a character to remember in this one-of-a-kind debut novel.
This book technically came out yesterday but I really wanted to mention it!
My top three reasons are:
1. Main character is Muslim American
2. Veronica Mars
3. Cover has POC
I love read books that have diversity so I hope this one places them all smoothly and of course I hope the book is amazing!
