Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Like cotton candy, the first installment in this quartet of high school murder mysteries is fluffy, fun and not terribly nourishing. An abundance of intrigue, along with a high school full of characters painted in very broad strokes, make for a speedy and entertaining read. The winner of the school's Miss Peach Blossom contest is to receive a college scholarship, a Hollywood screen test and the adoration of her peers. Of the four girls nominated, one will win and one--as readers are frequently reminded--will die. Will it be the poor--but nasty--little rich girl Lacey? Her good-at-heart best friend Kiki? Gullible, artistic April? Or Raven, the proud and beautiful political activist? Thanks to a slickly constructed plot, a bouncy narrative and an abundance of cliffhangers, readers are likely to follow the miniseries to its finish. Ages 12-up.

Whoah....a better Sweet Valley High. This book was very entertaining and one of those books to be read in an hour. I cant wait for the mystery to be solved! Spike is a very cool character and the dweed rocks. It has a very realistic setting unlike Sweet Valley. Lacey is a very complex character and Raven gives it a bit of a realistic touch.

This book is the first of a series of four wonderful, very-well written, very entertaining books. They take place in a high school in California (kinda reminds me of my old high school!). The highlight is the Peach Blossom Contest & Ball. Whoever wins the contest will be nicknamed Pretty Peggy Sue because that year's theme is the 50's. At the end of this book you find out which of the four contestants win the contest and who dies. (You have to wait until the end of the fourth book to find out who the killer is!) The characters are all very well developed. I love the Dweeb! He is the greatest! He adds a lot to the books!

It is an amazingly unpredictable book with so many thrilling scenes and times in the book. I would definitely read this book and all of the other Who Killed Peggy Sue books.
