Blog Tour & Giveaway for Uninvited by Leah Spiegel and Meg Summers

Uninvited by Leah Spiegel and 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.


My Review:

4 Stars 

I read this book as part of a blog tour for the author and Let me tell you I am turned onto a new author. Leah Spiegel knows how to write a good book. This was a great story, so much so that I am going to be reading the next 2 in the series as well. 

This is a funny, whodunit kinda book . It is a bit like Nancy Drew but with 4 high School girls who feel the need to be in the middle of the action. Funny OMG it has some dang good laughable moments in it for sure. It has suspense, a little flirting and Val , Oh Val so clueless but so dang funny at the same time.

The book is about four girls, Alley, Val, Libby and Kayla, who are searching for their friend Kirsten who has suddenly goes missing. They are trying to figure out who took her and why. Val gets full blown involved in trying to find her and thinks she is some kind of investigator. Shane becomes their prime suspect, but they soon find out Shane is not who they think he is. Ally Being Val’s Best friend tries to get her to stop with all her investigation antics each time she thinks of a new one. We watch these 4 girls cause problems, Discover some things, and aide in helping to find Kristen.

I will be reading the next 2 in this series as I need to see these gals in action some more and I want to know what happens with Alley and Shane . 


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.
