The book When No One Was Looking by Rosemary Wells, is a story about a newly discovered tennis star named Kathy. Kathy is an excellent tennis player but one thing is stopping her from getting to the top. A girl named Ruth Gumm. Kathy has worked so hard to get so far and all of her dreams were destroyed by a clumsy girl who couldn't play tennis. She just knew how to agitate Kathy and get her angry. But one day Ruth is found dead in a swimming pool and, Kathy and her entire family are the prime suspects. Kathy knows she didn't kill Ruth she just has to convince everybody else that she didn't. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries. It is different than any other book I have ever read. I thought it was well done and very interesting. It didn't get me bored after the first page. I believe that this novel is a great work by an accomplished writer.

When No One Was Looking . . . somebody died
When No One Was Looking, written by Rosemary Wells, portrays a teenage girl, Kathy's, love for the game of tennis. With her talent, Kathy could go as far as her dreams take her. However, there are bound to be those impossible to beat competitors. Kathy is forced to play one of them, Ruth. For technical reasons Ruth has to pull out of a tournament, and Kathy recieves an automatic win. The day before their next confrontation, Ruth is found at the bottom of the country club pool . . . dead. Some parts of the story are very others are quite dull. Since the author created the death so early in the story there is nothing else to talk about for the last three quarters of the book. The book is non-stop talk about tennis. Hard core tennis fans will love it. Throughout the book is an ongoing string of tournament that have first round and second round play. The book isn't believable, maybe because it didn't appeal to me. The killing seemed too farfetched. Why would someone kill anyone over a game of tennis? Because of the excessive amount of characters, I became a little mixed up in the middle of the story. Teenagers will find this book most enjoyable if I had to pick an age group. The grammar and vocabulary are easily understood. My final thoughts on this book are mixed. The book is okay, but far from great. I was disappointed with the outcome. I was expecting a little more since this book won the Edgar Alan Poe Special Award.

This is a heartfelt emotional story about a sophmore girl named Patrice Latta being noticed by a senior named Lance Carter. Lance makes a bet with his friends that he would get this girl to commmit fornication, and this story is about what happens when she fornicates and gets pregnant. I believe that this is a wonderful novel, and it is totally heartfelt. It is a presentable novel to young Americans today.
