Things are never what they seem to be in Paradiso . . .
Hope Hubbard is glad when her boyfriend, Jess Gardner, is cleared of April Lovewell’s murder. But if Jess didn’t kill April, who did?
When Lacey Pinkerton comes to school with a black eye, everyone whispers about her ex-boyfriend Vaughn Cutter’s violent temper—and how fast he found a new girlfriend, Lacey’s rival Raven Cruz. The whispers get louder when the police show up to take Vaughn in.
Is the school’s most popular jock really a cold-hearted killer—or is someone just setting him up for a fall? Find out in If Looks Could Kill, book three of the riveting series, Who Killed Peggy Sue?

Grade 6-8 --One of Paridiso High School's beauty contestants, Raven Cruz, is missing. Peggy Sue and April have already been murdered, so who's next? Readers won't know unless they read the next installment in this series. There is something that smacks of subliterature in a book with an unresolved plot; it does not seem worthy of reading. The action is farfetched and includes a scene in which two sleuthing friends visit a father incarcerated in the state penitentiary, and another in which a computer hacker breaks into a California Classified Information data bank to find previous crime records--right out of War Games . If something by Lois Duncan or Ellen Emerson White still doesn't hook reluctant readers, this could be motivational. Better, though, to let teens seek it out on their own than to dip into tight allotments to buy this one. --Phyllis Zucker Singer, Beach Channel High School, Rockaway Park, NY
