I always skipped over these books at Barnes & Noble due mainly to their covers; but don't let that stop you. These books are fun, hilarious, and still a mystery. Yeah, some things maybe obvious, but there will be just as much, if not more, that you won't see. Take the time and try these books. If you don't like the first one, than you haven't missed anything, but the series continues to get better with each book. Like I said, I wasn't crazy about the books initially, but when my cousin recommended them, I gave them a try and now I am counting down the days until the next one is out.For my full review, click here.
