Van Draanen, Wendelin. Sammy Keyes and the Kiss Goodbye.[Sammy Keyes Series book 18] Alfred A. Knopf, 2014. $16.99 ISBN9780375870552 236pgs. Grade 5 and up, P7Q7
This is the last book in the Sammy Keyes series. Sammy is in a coma throughout the book. The Hotel Thief’s (book 1) criminal is out of jail and wants Sammy dead. He attempts to murder her throughout the book, but fails. Her friends ban together to catch the would-be killer. This is a great ending to the series. I have a few students who are in love with this series. I would recommend it to grades 5 and up. November 2014 review by Jo Train.
