BOOM! Box, 2016
Audience: All Teens
Sixteen-year-old Marigold "Goldie" Vance has an insatiable curiosity. She lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place, and it's her dream to one day be the hotel's in-house detective. When Walter, the current detective, encounters a case he can't crack, together they utilize her smarts, skills, and connections to solve the mystery...even if it means getting into a drag race, solving puzzles, or chasing a helicopter to do it!
I loved how this was like Nancy Drew and Grease mixed together! It was a fun mystery. My only complaint was that race wasn't mentioned at all. If it took place in the past, it would have not been invisible, like it was in this story. In spite of that, I definitely am going to keep reading and not worry about it in any subsequent volumes.
