“I can't remember when I've laughed aloud so frequently during the reading of a book…A wonderful send-up of the Nancy Drew novels.” ―Nancy Pearl, NPR
“Chelsea Cain's gleeful parody Confessions of a Teen Sleuth affectionately hits all the formulaic high points of a Nancy Drew mystery, sending up and yet saluting America's favorite girl detective. All the unspoken truths about money, social status and teenage identity crises ordinarily crammed between the lines of her adventures are outrageously exposed, and the book is no less endearing for it.” ―New York Times Book Review
“A loving parody…breezy fun with a heart of gold.” ―Onion
“Irresistible, hilarious…Cain is a brilliant parodist.” ―Oregonian
“Wondrous fun…An immensely enjoyable re-visioning of the much-loved Nancy Drew, and the best kind of guilty pleasure.” ―Portland Mercury--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
