Product description

Review

"Adult mystery author Haines's YA debut is a meticulously crafted slow burn. . . . Haines writes gracefully, immersing readers in Iris's perceptive thoughts, suffering, and transformation. Nuanced relationships and a social climate shadowed by ethnic tension and war result in a compelling reflection on a complex era."--"Publishers Weekly"
." . . the compelling characters, superb setting, and myriad twists and turns will keep readers intrigued till the very end."--"School Library Journal"
"Take a powder, Nancy Drew. 1940s girl sleuth Iris Anderson is on the case. A stylish, slang-filled teen noir that is as entertaining as it is absorbing."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"What makes this such a standout is the cast. Sounding like they're right out of the 1940s (well, a 1940's movie, anyway), the characters, young and old, pop off the pages. Iris, intriguing and infuriating, captures the tension inherent in the teenage years, no matter what the decade. This joint is jumping."--"Booklist," Starred Review
"Iris' story has considerable crossover appeal, enticing both mystery lovers and historical fiction fans, with a cunningly devised plot and a cast of period-specific characters. . . ."--"The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
