Uninvited blog tour- # Review & #giveaway

Book & Author details: 
Uninvited by Leah Spiegel and Meg Summers
Series: South Hills Sidekicks #1
Publication date: February 11th 2012
Genre: Humorous YA Chick-Lit

When Alley started her senior year at Upper East High in the South Hills area, it was supposed to be the usual drag of hanging out with people who spent more on one outfit than Alley did on her entire wardrobe. That was until Kirsten, a girl in their clique, suddenly goes missing and the only people who seem to care are her friends. All evidence leads to the new comer Shane, a cocky and self-pretentious person in Alley’s opinion, but the police seem uninterested so she and the rest of the girls start a little investigation of their own. But they are nowhere closer to finding Kirsten than when they started and now they had the police’s attention; just not in the way they expected. The girls have to start over and discover that maybe it wasn’t an outsider who took Kirsten, but someone within their own clique who has something to hide; a secret that just might have gotten Kirsten killed.

Although we moved down to North Carolina several years ago, we’re originally from the Pittsburgh area. (That’s why a lot of our characters either live in the Burgh or reference our hometown football team, The Pittsburgh Steelers.) And yes, we even have the Southern accents to show for it now. Although Megan’s is considerable thicker, Leah still can’t understand the locals.
We are known as ‘the sisters’ among our neighborhood; when actually we’re probably really known as ‘the sisters with the Yorkies’. Our pups, Skippy Jon Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, were given long names to compensate for their small size but not their large personalities.
If Leah’s not glued to her electronic devices, AKA her Kindle Fire and various laptops, you can find her training ‘the attack dogs’, running on the treadmill while conceiving the next great book idea with the Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Florence and the Machine, The Lumineers, and Pink (just to name a few) blaring out of her earphones.
If Megan’s not glued to her electronic devices AKA her iPad and Nook Color, you can find her teaching fourth graders, swimming marathon style at the pool, or cuddling with ‘the attack dogs’ as she watches Duck Dynasty, Gold Rush, Scandal, Person of Interest, Morning Joe, etc.
Leah graduated from Edinboro University with a BA in Art Education. Megan received her teaching degree from Edinboro University and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology from Grand Canyon University.

My Review...

So I was given the opportunity to be part of this tour and I jumped on it because it gave me a chance to read this series again.

First off I am a huge fan of Leah Spiegel and Meg Summers. They have  a gift at being able to capture the essence of YA, with an elements of funny, serious, relationships and suspense.

I totally forgot about how Alley the cute, sarcastic witty girl gets the attention from the bad boy undercover cop.

At the same time gets in a world of trouble and shenanigans with her side kick and bff Val.

At the end Alley and the gang think they are done with their new found detective work and Alley thinks her new crush is unnoticed.  Or has it.....

 "Honey, Shane likes you," Val said. "I know he's not supposed to. But I think you're the only one who gets him and his jokes because lord knows, I do not."
Such a cute story with fun, mishaps, friendship, suspense and the blossoms of new love.

I can't wait to re-read the next two in the series as well as I think I will give another read through the Foolish Games series (another one of my faves)
