After seeing the cover for PRETTY CROOKED as a JPEG on the sidebar of our blog for so long, it's a real thrill to spot our first sleuth's debut novel out in the wild, as a real book, in a real boosktore. This copy was spotted at Brookline Booksmith in Massachusetts. Check out Elisa's awesome shelfmates -- Marie Lu! Lois Lowry! L.K. Madigan! The Glitterati of YA books!

It's been so fun running PRETTY CROOKED week here at Sleuths Spies and Alibis to celebrate the launch. We're so proud of Elisa and wish her and her book well, and we can't wait for PRETTY SLY next year.

  1. I would like to think that I would try to do something about it!

    This book sounds very interesting. Can't wait to read it!

  2. Most probably to bring those affected poor students to rise up together against those rich bullies?

    Like the cover, the title! Pretty Crooked. The trailer did a good job in introducing the book and capturing our interest! :)

  3. I would try to even the score!

  4. I would try to fight against those bullies too! I really love Pretty Crooked! I've read the book and it was really awesome! LOVE THE BOOK TRAILER TOO!

  5. I hate bullies and would really stand up against them if given the chance! I love Pretty Crooked synopsis!

  6. Mystery boxes...wild. What on earth could be in there, I wonder... I love that the box is crooked in the picture. Very pretty.

    Really excited about this book!

    Answer: I probably wouldn't do either, actually. I would probably either tattle (shameful, I know) or just refuse to be a part of it. I wish I had the cajones/lack of fear of getting in trouble to do this!
