MOBI Stanley and Hazel

Stanley and Hazel Stanley and Hazel #1 IshesWhen they discover the body of a girl with her head bashed in by a baseball bat the very different and separate realities of the two teens inform their decision Together they will figure out what happened to her and bring those responsible to justiceBut getting involved with each other and digging into the secrets behind this murder earns them some powerful enemies incl I found this book by chance from the library with a recommendation It was decent I will admit I did not have the ending figured out although I did not find every part to be plausibleStanley is a newsie and Hazel was born with a silver spoon They couldn't be different but a chance run in ends with them finding the body of a dead girl the sister of a friend of Hazels Together they are determined to catch the killer especially when they see a police officer hiding evidenceThe setting and character voices were captured well and did not seem overly forced However not all of the characters were fully fleshed out There was a decent amount of suspense but again some of the items seemed to come out of nowhere A lot of times Stanley was saying in his sections that all of sudden things made sense he came closer to the end of the mystery Except we get to see the same evidence and I just couldn't see how a led to b Even when it was all spelled out Plus only one mystery was solved the rest will go on to the second book
