book are we waiting on here at RFYF? The new year is almost here and we picked a title that hopefully will apply to all of our awesome readers for 2016.... Plus, it's a mystery that incorporates humor and horror--what could be better.
Teenage sleuth Kippy Bushman is back in this murderously funny sequel to No One Else Can Have You, which was named a Time Magazine Best Young Adult Book of the Year.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Friendship, Wisconsin... After catching her best friend’s murderer a few months ago, Kippy thought the worst was over. Then she found her boyfriend at home, barely breathing and clinging to life. The sheriff insists it was a suicide attempt, but Kippy refuses to believe it. Given everything that’s happened to her, she wonders if something more sinister is going on. Without any evidence, no one will listen to her—except maybe her former nemesis. But in a town where everyone has their secrets and a next-door neighbor could be a serial killer, you take all the help you can get. Even more shocking and thrilling than its critically acclaimed predecessor, Nothing Bad Is Going to Happen is another clever, riotous dark comedy from Kathleen Hale that finds the perfect balance between the humor and horror.
