Review: Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe

A quirky girly book that grasped my attention with its peculiar title. For Michele's first young adults book she deserves a standing ovation, each of her characters have such deep and unique personalities it makes the characters seen life like, each having their own quirks and flaws makes them hilarious and the book a joy to read.

An annoying flaw of the book has to be the footnotes that were used throughout it became seriously annoying at times. The infuriating thing about the footnotes, is that they play an important role in the book so you have to read them, making the book less enjoyable. 

Meet Jasmine, 1 forensic supersleuth, 2 aspiring Model Daughter, 3 and friend to animals. 4 One second she's trying to enjoy her Vegas Vacation,5 the next she's tangled up in an outrageous adventure and has to outwit a crazed killer before he ends ten lives, one of them her own. 6
1 Hi! That's me! 

2 I. Wish.
3 Emphasis on aspiring. Current status: failing.
4 If friend means "unsuspecting victim" and animals means "one very bad kitty."
5 And meet the cute guy at the Snack Hut. I have priorities.
6 Meep! But I guess it winds up okay since Kirkus Reviews says: "Inventive, witty, and laugh-out-loud funny, with an enjoyably twisty ending." They wouldn't say that if everyone died, right? Right?

 I think this is definitely a book to read especially if you like light humour, mystery and fashion although you must be very patient in some parts.

  1. You're totally right, the footnotes were annoying at times, I think that it would be better if there wer less of them; cool concept for a novel anyway!
