Description

Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It's home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!

Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can't help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new "look." Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.

Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.

This ebook includes a sample chapter of DEAD IS A BATTLEFIELD.

      • content: buggirl - This is a book for those of you who like paranormal/weird/sweet romance/appropriate/no cursing/mystery all in one book series. It's perfect for anyone who wants to read something romantic and scary all at once. The main character Daisy is someone everyone would want to be friends with. I think that everyone has a little bit of Daisy in them, whether they realize it or not. I think everyone wants to go on some sort of adventure, or solve a mystery, and Daisy does just that, giving you that feeling of "I want to do that" or just feeling content reading the book. Either way it's perfect for everyone! At the end of each book It leaves you wanting more, thankfully there's a lot in the series. THANK YOU! Marlene Perez for the perfect teen/preteen series!!

        September 1, 2008
        Fans who mourn the loss of TV's Veronica Mars
        are in for a treat as Perez (Unexpected Development
        ) delivers a wise-cracking, boy-lusting, determined sleuth of a high school protagonist named Daisy Giordano. Daisy comes from a crime-solving family of female psychics—Mom gets premonitions, sister Rose can listen in on people's thoughts and sister Poppy has the gift of telekinesis. To Daisy's chagrin, she's the only “normal” in the family—a nonpsychic. She doesn't let this unfortunate genetic deficiency stop her from investigating the mysterious deaths of high school girls around Nightshade, Daisy's wacky hometown, especially when sleuthing gets her face time with Ryan Mendez, Daisy's hottie crush and son of the town police chief. With a suspect cheerleading coach and an even more suspect cheerleading captain—beautiful Samantha “the Divine” Devereaux, who shows up for school pale and dragging a coffin everywhere—this quick, lighter-than-air spoof of the undead, cheerleaders and popularity is pure pleasure. Teens will be glad to know two sequels are already in the pipeline. Ages 12–up.

        November 1, 2008
        Gr 7 Up-Nightshade, CA, is downright strange and full of the unexpected. When the girl-to-be, cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, begins the school year with a completely new look, Daisy Giordano gets suspicious. The fact that Samantha appears dead doesn't seem to bother anyone, and before long looking dead becomes the rage. Being dead takes on a whole new meaning when a girl is mysterious attacked and turns up in the morgue, and other cheerleaders are stricken with seizures. Daisy and her psychic sisters get to work investigating the goings-on and learn that the culprit is really a vampire, and Daisy is determined to get to the bottom of things. This is the witty and humorous first installment in a series; it provides romance, mystery, friendship, adventure, and the supernatural all rolled up in a fast-paced, plot-twisting story. Readers will identify with Daisy and her struggle to accept and appreciate who she really is and what she has to offer. The slapstick humor and tough attitudes mixed with the occult make this an entertaining choice for teen libraries."Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY"
