This time's different. P.W. Creighton is a talented author with a lot of style; you can tell that just by glancing through his reviews on Amazon. (Here's his author page; check it out.) So I have no doubt this 99¢ book, Bad Reputation: A North Shore Novel, is a compelling read with guts, and I'm recommending it. If you like teen/YA mysteries with romantic elements, consider giving this one a try, and then let me know what you think, okay? If you write Mr Creighton a review, I'd love to see it.
