The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick

Recap #9: The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick by on 4 August 2014

Dove recaps The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick, a book so painfully obvious, it practically announces the killer on the first page. But, you know, red herrings, hot cheerful boys, intense quiet boys, and people who run away to privately owned islands. Your standard baffling Cusick fare.

The Perfume by Caroline B. Cooney

Since our names + evil twins come from this book, it was fitting that it would be my first recap. Title: The Perfume OMG! What happens next??? Read on… »
