This may be my new favorite volume in the series. No real "mystery" in the traditional sense, but a wonderful pay-off to a lot of the emotional themes and character dynamics in the series, and an ending that really shook up status quo in a way that I think will pay off for future books. ( )

This book was by far my favorite book in the series. It was not like the typical Sammy Keyes story line, but that didn't mean it wasn't amazing. I can tell this series is coming to a close as Wendelin Van Draanen begins to tie up loose ends. Five stars! ( )

In this pivotal book in the Sammy Keyes series, Sammy tackles the persistent mysteries of her own life.

Mysteries like: Who is her father? And why has her mother kept it such a secret? How long can she manage to hide out in Grams' seniors-only building before someone catches on? Is her mother really planning to marry her boyfriend's father? (Ew.) And why, why is Heather Acosta so nasty?

During one crazy weekend in Las Vegas, with the help of an entire army of Elvis impersonators, Sammy finally gets some answers. But of course knowledge comes at a price—and solving the mysteries of her own life will cost Sammy more than she ever meant to pay. . . . 

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:16 -0400)

"When youth sleuth Sammy Keyes travels to Las Vegas to stop her mom from marrying her boyfriend's dad, she never expects she'll learn the identity of her absent father in the process"--Provided by publisher.
