The Twig

A long time ago we used to be friends…

I’ve thought of you lately, Veronica. In fact, I’ve thought about you enough to annoy everyone with tragically off-key renditions of the Dandy Warhols and put together a list of Marshmallow-appropriate reading. 

White Cat, by Holly Black

Cassel is just trying to get by in his posh boarding school, running an unofficial bookie operation for his wealthy classmates and concealing his past with his con-running family and the mob princess love of his life…whom he may or may not have murdered. Black combines magic, noir, long cons and lies, heartache and politics into something unique and engrossing. 

Confessions of a Murder Suspect, James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Tandy is in danger of taking the fall for her powerful parents’ murder, but that might be nothing compared to the danger of hunting down the truth. 

The Basic Eight, by Daniel Handler

Senior year is stressful. You’ve got gossip, drugs, conniving classmates, tyrannical teachers, party-planning, school plays, ill-fated romance, tests, oh, right, and scandal, murder, and tabloid coverage. But Flannery Culp and her sharp-tongued, high-achieving clique of girlfriends aren’t going to back down from the challenge. 

Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham

This original story picks up after the movie, with Veronica back in Neptune and back on the case. 

Heist Society, by Ally Carter

Kat thought she’d pulled off her last con: stealing herself a spot at an exclusive private school and a life away from her high-flying criminal family. But there’s always one last job. 

One For the Money, by Janet Evanovich

It’s New Jersey, not California, but if you’re looking for side-splitting mystery with larger-than-life characters, a wise-cracking heroine, and a selection of unsuitable love interests to choose from, check out Stephanie Plum.  

Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson

Melinda Sordino begins her freshman year as a cynical social pariah with a bad attitude and a nightmare she won’t talk about. Speak is a stark, poignant, darkly funny depiction of high school hellscapes and the aftermath of sexual assault. 

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, by E. Lockhart

Frankie was mild-mannered. Frankie was well-behaved. Frankie wouldn’t pull pranks, date a senior, infiltrate a secret society, smash the patriarchy, or become a criminal mastermind. Frankie needed a change. 

What I Saw and How I Lied, by Judy Blundell

Loyalty, betrayal, and secrets in the wake of World War II.
