Once again I did enjoy this story. It is nice to see the relationship between Nicky and Noah grow. Joe does a great job keeping you guessing about the ‘whodunit' part. But I think the author makes the story a bit over the top, again. It has so much going on with all of the secondary characters. There is a listing of them at the front of the book and it’s over 20 characters long. The speech pattern of a couple of the students is ‘um, like, um, you know’ annoying. As with the first book, there are laugh out loud, completely funny sections. And enough of the mystery and suspense that keeps me reading, even past the annoying student dialogue.
This is an enjoyable story I would recommend. I look forward to the next story when it comes out.
