Okay, so in my previous post I mentioned the hilarious YA detective novel Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe. It only seems fitting that I include my review for it as well.
Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe
Enter a new talent into the YA world: Michele Jaffe, queen of comedy! If Bad Kitty doesn't make you laugh until your sides split, then I don't know what will.
Six-foot-tall Jasmine Callihan is obsessed with superpowers. Her best friends all have one. Heck, even people she doesn't like have them. But what's her superpower? Only the unfortunately troubling one of attracting cats. Which is exactly what happens to her on her family vacation in Las Vegas.
The cat that jumps on her in Vegas belongs to Fred, the young son of the famous Fiona Bristol, who is currently embroiled in a murderous love triangle between her lover and her ex-husband, Red Early. With her eager but amateur detective skills, Jas detects a sinister plot designed to hurt Fiona and Fred...a plot that involves the underhanded involvement of a gorgeous (and tall!) Jack, whom Jas wishes desperately is her soulmate--you know, except for the he's-trying-t-kill-her part.
But things are not always what they seem. Sometimes, the truth is not what you want it to be--it is much, much more dangerous.
Bad Kitty is completely hilarious. I honestly haven't read a book this funny in a long time. Jaffe's characters are quirky but well-developed, and I absolutely adored her constant play on the format of the novel (hint: footnotes). Pick this up if you're a fan of Meg Cabot, and you won't regret it!
