MY OWN WORST FRENEMY has been nominated for the American Library Association's 2013 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers List!

SWEET 16 TO LIFE, #3 in the Langdon Prep series, drops Jan. 29!

Chanti is smart and funny, and this multicultural cast is a welcome addition to the world of teen mysteries. The story is well paced and full of surprises...This clever mystery with a biting look at class and privilege is a breath of fresh air.
Kirkus Reviews

Chanti is an engaging and well-developed character; she's full of humor and spunk, and readers will definitely want to know if she gets her man-the bad one and the good one. All of her friends, foes, loves, and neighbors round out this intriguing and suspenseful mystery. A great choice for those who like a bit of romance and suspense in their mysteries and a lot of spirit in their detectives
School Library Journal

Like Nancy Drew for the next generation, Reid's new character is smart, smooth, and sassy, a sleuth with style and snap. Chanti is fun to spend time with, she has a great sense of humor, and her interesting home life practically guarantees some excellent future plot lines.
Las Vegas Journal Review

Creeping With the Enemy...will appeal to a wide variety of teens who like their Gossip Girls on the realistic side. Chanti’s detective work is astute and entertaining. It is refreshing to have a mystery series that integrates diversity without being heavy handed or preachy.
VOYA

Reid's debut, which kicks off her Langdon Prep series, perfectly nails what it's like to be a scholarship student at a chi-chi private school, let alone being the new girl at school. Really apropos title. The amateur sleuth high jinks are fun. A great start to a promising new series.
