Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this novel centers around a murder -- and finding out who did it. Along the way, there's another murder and a face-off with a gun. Both murders are barely described. The triplet sisters who try to solve the crimes smoke cigars, wear designer clothes, and launch a designer fashion label. One sister makes out with a movie star she just met, and another has had a sexual relationship with the heir to a rival family.
Is It Any Good?
There's plenty to keep readers going: three beautiful rich triplets, a movie star, a cute family rival, murders, the launch of the Hamilton sisters' fashion line, and a missing diamond. The gem in question is fabled to "forever protect and preserve the eminent expanse of Fifth -- from Central Park right down to Washington Square. Shoppers would always feel at home, and the world's greatest retailers would flourish and expand."
The author certainly had fun writing this book, and readers will have fun, too, if they are willing to overlook the formulaic writing (such as the scripted protagonists, who boil down to the good girl, the sensible one, and the wild child).
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
