"This excellent collection gives faces to Latino teens in a most original way." --Booklist Starred Review


"The mix of realistic and fantastic mysteries guarantees broad reader appeal for this impressive collection." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Format: Paperback
YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE: LATINO MYSTERY STORIES FOR TEENS edited by Sarah Cortez is a fiction anthology I recommend. This collection of short stories is suitable for adults as well as teens and for readers of all nationalities. The book earned a starred review from BOOKLIST. There are eighteen stories in all. Most of the stories are mysteries though not all of them. Most are written from a first-person viewpoint. Editor Sarah Cortez provides a particularly well-written historic revenge story, "For You, Mother." It's right up there with Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado." Each story is unique and the authors have impressive credentials.
Stories in the collection:
"No Soy Loco" this leads with Victor who starts hearing voices after being hit in the head by a baseball. "No One Remembers" is the story of an abduction. Fantasy and reality are well-balanced in "The Tattoo." In "No Flowers for Marla," a girl investigates the murder of a classmate. A humorous mystery story "All the Facts, A to Z," could be described as the case of the missing saints and features the grandmother from hell. In "Hating Holly Hernandez," Zander finds a severed arm in his school locker. The librarian deals with mysterious murders. In "The Red Lipstick," a high school student solves a mystery involving missing auto parts at a garage. "The Right Size" uses point of view effectively in a crime story. "Nuts" is problematic, a good story that needs an ending. "Belle" is an interesting character study of an intriguing, mysterious girl. "Valentine Surprise" is exactly that--a crime story with a surprise ending. All in all, a very satisfying reading experience.

We have to get adolescents into wanting to read more and this book should keep them interested. It is an easy read and has imaginative stories that they will enjoy. Its one those that they will enjoy and won't be a project for school.
