Good Deeds Society is Susan Smith Nash's first book for young adults and is also her first mystery novel. I like the detail she uses in character descriptions and the fascinating plot development containing many twists and adventures. Though this book is ideal for intelligent teens, it is a work I recommend for any reader of good fiction. It is a pleasant, light-hearted departure from her more serious works. I can easily see this piece as the first installment of a series based on the main character, who's depicted as introspective, yet compassionate. She's a little out of place in high school, but manages to form solid friendships after finding herself in the middle of unexpected situations. Her family life is strange, but one can't help but like her precocious, tech-savvy brother and a mother who has some difficulty dealing with the reality of domestic life after being a child TV-sitcom star (with stalker fans). This book is funny and poignant.
