In Fantaskey's (Jessica Rules the Dark Side, 2012) funny mystery, 17-year-old Millie Ostermeyer writes for her school newspaper and is a lot like her literary heroine, Nancy Drew. When the head football coach is found dead, the student reporter decides to investigate his murder. She teams up with her classmate, the gorgeous but mysterious Chase Albright. Unfortunately, the prime suspect is Millie's father, the assistant coach who often disagreed with the victim. Millie tackles every angle to solve the mystery and in the process she uncovers some surprising facts about all the suspects, including her dad.
