Praise for Same As It Never Was"Adjusting to a new town becomes especially hard for a teen once she suspects a service club is up to something sinister in this YA mystery.... An entertaining tale aggrandized by an unshakable protagonist and the family she’s thankfully stuck with.”
Carolyn R. Russell sticks a perfect landing with her humorous mystery, Same as It Never Was. Quinn Bard, her smart, plucky protagonist, grants readers a close look into the messy life of a teen girl transplanted from Boston to a small New Hampshire town. The repartee in Quinn's intellectual family is delightful and the young characters are well-drawn and true-to-life as they go about their adventures. A must-read!—Edith Maxwell, Agatha- and Macavity-nominated author of the Quaker Midwife Mysteries, the Local Foods Mysteries, and the Country-Store Mysteries
