Back cover copy

Friendship, Wisconsin, used to be as friendly as its name suggests, but all that changes when high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is murdered. Unfortunately, Friendship's police are more adept at finding lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth's best friend, Kippy, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth's secret diary, sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship--where no one is a suspect--anyone could be the killer.

Review quote

"Hale's story is pure fiction. It's also extremely funny. As the protagonist, Kippy Bushman, attempts to unravel the mystery of who killed her best friend, the reader is introduced to a cast of bizarre characters that turn what could be a grisly mystery into a darkly hilarious madcap romp."--Newsweek
