No One Else Can Have You No One Else Can Have You

Author: Kathleen Hale 
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: January 7, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield.

Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship—where no one is a suspect—anyone could be the killer.


Why I'm Excited:

I'm such a sucker for YA mysteries. This one sounds dark and funny at the same time. I love the Midwestern setting (billed as the teenage Fargo) and, for real, I just love this cover. The ugly sweater just screams the Midwest and the moose in the noose is just perfect. Love.

  21. This sounds like such a dark yet funny book! That sweater totally has the essence of Midwestern, as it's corny yet cute. ;) I'm really excited to pick this one up, I think it's going to be a very different kind of YA mystery. =0)
