5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hartley Featherstone 18 mars 2014

As I usually don't read novels about teenagers, the Deadly Cool series by Gemma Halliday intrigued me. I love the way she writes......funny and with a twist. I would recommend these books to everyone.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Hartley Featherston book 26 octobre 2012
Par D. Ann - Publié sur
I was really excited to see the return of Hartley Featherstone, high school detective, after the fantastic first novel, Deadly Cool. Social Suicide picks up a few weeks after Deadly Cool ends; Hartley found the killer, has a new complicated relationship with Chase, and now works for the school paper. What starts out as a routine interview of a cheating scandal ends up becoming a murder - no Twittercide - investigation.

Hartley was way more likeable in this book, compliments to the development of her character. Instead of just whining about everything her mom does, we get to see their relationship in a different light. Besides the usual teenage angst of not being allowed out, we get to see Hartley struggle with her mom venturing back into the dating world. As much as we suspend our disbelief that a high schooler could solve murder investigations while not being pulled out of school when her life is threated twice, Halliday still models Hartley's everyday interactions off of normal teen interactions.

Social Suicide is a little more relaxed than Deadly Cool. I didn't feel the same urgency/danger when Hartley was following the case as I did in the first book. Maybe it's because there were two deaths in the first one and I truly didn't believe there would be a second death in Social Suicide. I don't know but I didn't feel the same desperation to keep Hartley off the killer's tracks.

However, I was so surprised when when the killer was revealed. Whereas I kind of knew who the killer was in Deadly Cool, this time I was blindsided. Like Hartley, I had no clue who could have killed Sydney. It really is the person you least expect.
Overall, it's a good book for 21st century teenage murder mysteries. I'll be on the lookout for the sequel to see what Hartley gets herself into next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gemma does it again! 22 octobre 2012

I have to admit that the only thing I don't like about Gemma Halliday books is that they have to end... They are fast paced, interesting, and a guaranteed chuckle every page or two - and that keeps you engaged from beginning to end.

My only problem is that I wish she could whip out a new book every week for me personally, as there just aren't enough books to keep me entertained year round yet!

All her books are sure to please if you like a light, fun-filled who-done-it! This book is supposedly geared for the teen/young adult group, but I found it interesting and fun even though I am a grandmother!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Social Suicide is a strong follow-up to Deadly Cool 30 août 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Deadly Cool was a hilarious first installment in the Hartley Featherstone series from Gemma Halliday. Social Suicide is a strong follow-up packed with just as many laughs and quite a bit more tension. This is definitely ones series I can only see as getting better!

Hartley Featherstone is one hilarious heroine (especially when she's not meaning to be.) She's awkward, a bit nerdy, sometimes clueless, and kind of a ditz at times. She's a combination of pretty much every teenage girl out there. She also just happens to stumble upon dead bodies every now and then. She then just has to solve those murders. All that on top of school, the newspaper, her mom's new dating life, and a possible crush on her newspaper's editor. No big deal, right?

Hartley's mom's love life makes for some awkward conversations that will have the reader laughing out loud. Hartley and her mom have a great relationship so her mom likes to be open with her. Sometimes a little too open. Not only does Hartley have to deal with her mom's love life, she also has to deal with her own (non-existent at the moment) one. Chase sends out tons of mixed signals and he spends the whole book confusing Hartley. On top of that Hartley has to deal with the sickening cuteness of her best friend Sam with her boyfriend Kyle. If you look up the word whipped in the dictionary you will find a picture of Kyle. It's funny how he acts with Sam but it's also super sweet. Social Suicide has a cast of pretty awesome characters.

The murder (Twittercide) in Social Suicide was a bit of a let down. It was a little unbelievable and it was pretty easy to predict who the murderer was even if the motives weren't clear. I get that this is a murder mystery for teens but it was just a little too tame. I would have liked higher stakes and more action. The book was still greatly enjoyable though.

Overall, Social Suicide is a pretty great book. Series usually go downhill after the first book but that is not the case with this one. The characters keep it fresh and the mystery keeps it gripping. I can't wait for more.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Additon to the Series! 5 juillet 2012

I just love Hartley. I think this amazing protagonist is what makes the story. Hartley is witty, quirky, funny, a great friend and a not so good investigator (she's getting better though). Hart comes across like a real teenager (believe, I have one) in a world in which technology has taken over, Twitter, Facebook, IM, ipods, texting, the internet and even are all big players in the book.

Chase is again Hart's love interest, well sort off; we know they each care for each other, but they're taking things slow, which I like. I do hope that they get to have that date on book three *sigh*. Sam is, as always, a good and loyal friend, even when it goes against everything she believes in; as I said, `a really good friend'. We see a few of the characters from book one as well. More importantly, Hartley's mom is now dating a certain detective *wink, wink*

The plot is a bit predictable, but nevertheless I enjoyed the ride. The writing is amazing, so funny that I laughed out loud more than once. I mean, who would have thought of committing `Twittercide'? Ms. Halliday, that's who!
I cannot wait for book three, whenever it's published, I'm so there. If you like Nancy Drew when you were younger, if you like mystery and a light, funny story, look no further than the Deadly Cool series.

About the cover: The cover is really beautiful, although the model looks less like Hartley. I like the font and again the headphone cable that forms the word "suicide".
