"Readers will be drawn into Cathy's fast-paced adventure, which takes her into the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown." (Publishers Weekly)
"It's just a good read...Cathy's struggles with school, romance, and intrigue recall geek heroines like Veronica Mars." (Entertainment Weekly)
I loved reading the physical copy of the book, so I was curious to hear the audio book. The only reason I gave four stars for the performance was that the valley girl accent got too much sometimes. I mean, I know that Cathy is supposed to be cynical, but seriously. The valley girl voice got tiring.
The story itself and the background sounds ie (shoes clicking on pavement, computer keys being typed ex.).
I honestly have no idea what book I would compare this to, other then the others in this series.
No, first time
If I could
First off, I rarely write reviews.. I was at my local library in the used book section when I can across book 2 and 3 in the Cathy series for 1$ each. Previously I heard about this series from a book review on YouTube. At first I thought this was going to be a series way to young for me ( I'm over 30). However I quickly got into the story and was itching to find out more. I found myself very caught up in the story and all the developments . I felt like a fly on the wall following Cathy on her adventures.. I have read some reviews for this book and have to disagree that this was crappy book with a horrible predictable story line. I'm sure I'm not the only reader out there who purposely tries not to analyze the crap out of a book I'm reading. Reading for me is an escape. I've always had the ability to read and visually put myself there and in the situations. .. I think this is definitely worth reading or listening to the audiobook.

What a joke of a story-line? Was this supposed to for little kids? If so, why all the drug references? If not, then was this suppose to be some kind of mystery? I just didn't get it. A waste of five and a half hours.... Just a silly pointless book.
