      Summary: Flora Calhoun has a reputation for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong-- like stumbling upon a classmate's body years ago. When she gets a midnight call from Ava, who had ignited Flora's heart last summer, she arrives just in time to witness Ava bleed out in a dark alley. Now Flora is set on a path of rage and vengeance for all the dead girls whose killer is never found.

Booklist Reviews 2020 July #1

Flora Calhoun's reputation around school isn't exactly spotless. Many think she's odd, or believe she's crazy. Some even view her as dangerous. But when she receives a plea for help from her ex-flame, Ava, only to find Ava's dead body, Flora becomes determined. Inspired by a thirst for justice and an ex-CIA grandfather, Flora uncovers clues that point to Ava's death being more than a mugging gone wrong. Soon she's pulling threads leading to prominent figures in her community who are willing to go to any length to stop her from uncovering the truth. Schachte has done an impressive job taking a hard-boiled detective story and turning it on its head. In place of a grim and grizzled gumshoe is a troubled young woman with a penchant for trouble and a nose for investigation. Other tropes are present as well, such as potentially crooked cops and untrustworthy politicians. Even the femme fatale has been reinvented as a bad-boy street fighter battling his own demons. This is an addictive page-turner for YA mystery fans, especially those looking for a Veronica Mars–like read. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Flora Calhoun found her first dead body when she was 14. For the past two years, determined to see justice done, she's acted as an unlicensed investigator, aided by her best friend, Cassidy Yang, and retired CIA operative grandfather, and only barely tolerated by the police when they cross paths. When her ex-almost-girlfriend Ava McQueen texts her asking for help, Flora responds, only to discover Ava dying of gunshot wounds. Flora's investigation into the truth behind Ava's murder leads her into the heart of an underground fighting organization featuring local teens. As she works to dismantle the club, ferret out the ringleaders, and discover how Ava was connected to it, Flora and her allies, including a champion fighter, face threats and mounting danger at every turn, and Flora stands ready to lose everyone she loves. In her gripping debut, Schachte merges the spirit of Nancy Drew with modern-day sensibilities: Flora's intrepid drive for justice is keyed to intense vulnerability and lingering trauma, while her friends and family act as a support network. Some situations, such as Flora's grandfather's willingness to enable her investigations, border on the implausible, but tender interpersonal relationships and solid pacing make for an enjoyable murder mystery. Ages 12–up. Agent: Margaret Sutherland Brown, Emma Sweeney Agency. (July)
