Jas thinks that everyone has a super power. Everyone, that is, except herself - unless you count her extraordinary ability to get herself in trouble.
But the last thing Jas expected to do on her family holiday in glitzy Las Vegas was to survive a cat attack and solve a celebrity murder mystery.
As she finds herself tracking an unknown killer through a bevy of Vegas parties, Jas develops a huge crush on the possibly evil - but GORGEOUS - Jack, and manages to collect some valuable life lessons for her Summer Meaningful Reflection Journal along the way.
Little Life Lesson Number 5: when you go to prison, try not to be wearing a bikini.
But despite a few 'mishaps', Jas finally solves the case. And to top it all off, Jack ISN'T evil, and has a bit of a crush on Jas too.
Perhaps she does have some super powers after all...

Review by chibimajo
it was very entertaining. Our main character wants to be a detective when she grows up, and it’s constantly landing her in trouble, especially with her father. So it’s really no surprise that she finds a mystery she feels compelled to solve while on vacation during summer break. The story is told after the events happened, so in footnotes on several of the pages are added conversations between her and her friends as she’s telling us the story. It was rather funny, a little bit of romance added in here too, of course, and not nearly as predictable as I would have thought.
