Teen Tuesday: The Prince of Venice Beach by Blake Nelson
check the catalog here
Robert "'Cali" Callahan is a teen runaway, living on the streets of Venice Beach, California. He's got a pretty sweet life: a treehouse to sleep in, a gang of surf bros, a regular basketball game...even a girl who's maybe-sorta interested in him.
What he doesn't have is a plan.
All that changes when a local cop recommends Cali to a private investigator who is looking for a missing teenager. After all, Cali knows everyone in Venice. But the streets are filled with people who don't want to be found, and when he's hired to find the beautiful Reese Abernathy, who would do anything to stay hidden, Cali must decide where his loyalties truly lie.
Sylvie says "Honestly, I would recommend this to someone who doesn't read a lot. A teenage guy (or girl who's not picky about if it's a romance or not!) who likes a mystery, a thrill, and a little bit of beach sand thrown in would enjoy this."
My thoughts: a quick read, interesting characters, and an amateur detective...all in California. A good summertime read!
