{{Xpresso Book Tours}} Blog Tour + Giveaway: [Review] UNINVITED by LEAH SPIEGEL & MEG SUMMERS

Title: Uninvited 
Authors:Leah Spiegel 
& Meg Summers
Series: South Hills Sidekicks #1
Publication date: February 11th 2012
Genre: Humorous YA Chick-Lit

When Alley started her senior year at Upper East High in the South Hills area, it was supposed to be the usual drag of hanging out with people who spent more on one outfit than Alley did on her entire wardrobe. That was until Kirsten, a girl in their clique, suddenly goes missing and the only people who seem to care are her friends.

 All evidence leads to the new comer Shane, a cocky and self-pretentious person in Alley’s opinion, but the police seem uninterested so she and the rest of the girls start a little investigation of their own. But they are nowhere closer to finding Kirsten than when they started and now they had the police’s attention; just not in the way they expected.

The girls have to start over and discover that maybe it wasn’t an outsider who took Kirsten, but someone within their own clique who has something to hide; a secret that just might have gotten Kirsten killed.


About Leah & Meg

Although we moved down to North Carolina several years ago, we’re originally from the Pittsburgh area. (That’s why a lot of our characters either live in the Burgh or reference our hometown football team, The Pittsburgh Steelers.) And yes, we even have the Southern accents to show for it now. Although Megan’s is considerable thicker, Leah still can’t understand the locals.
We are known as ‘the sisters’ among our neighborhood; when actually we’re probably really known as ‘the sisters with the Yorkies’. Our pups, Skippy Jon Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, were given long names to compensate for their small size but not their large personalities.
If Leah’s not glued to her electronic devices, AKA her Kindle Fire and various laptops, you can find her training ‘the attack dogs’, running on the treadmill while conceiving the next great book idea with the Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Florence and the Machine, The Lumineers, and Pink (just to name a few) blaring out of her earphones.
If Megan’s not glued to her electronic devices AKA her iPad and Nook Color, you can find her teaching fourth graders, swimming marathon style at the pool, or cuddling with ‘the attack dogs’ as she watches Duck Dynasty, Gold Rush, Scandal, Person of Interest, Morning Joe, etc.
Leah graduated from Edinboro University with a BA in Art Education. Megan received her teaching degree from Edinboro University and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology from Grand Canyon University.

hmm...So, I LOVED Uninvited. Just thought I let you all know..There are more books in this series and now after reading Uninvited I need to know what will happen next. Leah and Meg are a super power writing team. Together they create wonders! I truly found myself glue to the book. I felt connected to the character and they made me laugh. It had the perfect about of everything a story need..Mystery, Drama, Love, Laughs,..ect this was a definite fun read.
I love the way Shane and Alley are together..It was cute, funny, and sweet all rolled into one. 

This Story is told in Alley's POV. I find Alley to be a wonderfully written main character. She is witty, cute and fun. When Kristen ( one of her friends ) goes missing. With her best friend, Val, {who wants to play detective} They set out to find clue to help them find Kristen, Alley is merely trying to keep Val out of trouble so she tags along. One thing leads to another and they start to piece more more together but the cops aren't happy that they are messing with their case. They seem to get into trouble a few times..especially when Shane is around. Speaking of Shane..What a dream boat! He is simply wonderful, funny, cocky, and just love bugging Alley.

All in all Uninvited had me captivated from cover to cover. I would recommend this to anyone who likes humor, Mysteries, and tale of friendship. YA fans will adore this read..I know I did!
