The Poisoned Pencil
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
Chaos Theory is the first in a teen mystery series featuring 17-year-old Kami, her best friends, and a "bad boy" who was sent away after his sister overdosed. In addition, Kami's beloved grandmother died, and that's left Kami reeling. She sees the opportunity to figure out what really happened to Daniel's sister and clear Daniel's name.
There are things I loved about Chaos Theory. Each of the characters was well developed and likable. Yet, I often found myself questioning the reality. As a parent of a 19 year old, there's no way at 17 that I would have let her put herself in harm's way to go undercover and find a drug dealer. I just can't imagine parents like Kami's agreeing to that.
That said, that's not something that most teens will think about when reading this story. I think it will have great appeal with readers who are looking for a modern day, slightly edgier Nancy Drew.
