Paperback352 pages
Expected publication: January 2nd 2018 by Sourcebooks Fire (first published January 1st 2018)

Marisa wasn’t planning to be a snoop for hire—until she accidentally caught her best friend’s boyfriend making out with another girl. Now her reputation for sniffing out cheaters has spread all over school, and Marisa finds herself the reluctant queen of busting two-timing boys.

But when ex-frenemy Kendall asks her to spy on her boyfriend, TJ, Marisa quickly discovers the girl TJ might be falling for is Marisa herself. And worse yet? The feelings are quickly becoming mutual. Now, she’s stuck spying on a “mystery girl” and the spoken-for guy who just might be the love of her life…

My thoughts and review

"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"

By chance, Marisa happens to spot her best friends boyfriend on a date with another girl.  So what does she do, she takes a picture for proof, of course.  This is the one event that spirals her high school life out of control.  Word travels fast and when an old "friend," Kendall, from the past wants to hire her to spy on her emotional absent boyfriend TJ,  Marisa may have more to deal with than she ever imagined.  

Marisa is still hurting from her breakup with her ex boyfriend, while still trying to be friends with him while he is dating someone else.  Her best friend, Charlie is about to be expelled from school for something she had nothing to do with. To make matters worse, Marisa may be falling for one of the guys she is supposed to be spying on.  This is high school drama at its finest.  It shows you how mean girls and boys can really be to each other and the lengths they will go to cover their tracks.  Just when you think you have figured it out, it will surprise you!

This is one book I read in one night.  A very quick, fun read that you can't put down until you find out what happens at the end.  I love the Marisa character but she needs to mind her own business and stop trying to make things right with her old friend, Kendall.  There is a reason they quit being friends and she needs to remember this.  She can be a pushover at times.  

All in all a well written book that I will recommend for many days to come.  Thank you to Netgalley and Sourcefire Books for providing me with an advanced copy of this book for a fair and honest review.  I receive no compensation.  All thoughts are my own.
