Death By Bikini
I rented a house on the other side of the island and pulled what looked like the most likely beach read from my stack of books waiting to be read. I wasn't disappointed by Death By Bikini. Aphra is a fun character and it will be easy for my students to put themselves in her shoes. While she never specifies what island she lives on, I believe it is Hawaii. Too bad, because I would love to be able to recommend a teen mystery that takes place in the Caribbean!
Despite the fact that the cover raises eyebrows, I found this to be a fun mystery that my middle school students will love. When I drive back to my end of the island, I will be stopping at one of their houses so that this Linda Gerber's fun novel can start getting passed around.
