Wendelin Van Draanen /ˈwɛndəlɪn væn ˈdrɑːnən/ (born January 6, 1965) is an American writer of children's and young-adult fiction. Van Draanen was born in Chicago, Illinois. One of her very early influences was Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. According to the author, the book was "about the magic of growing up and reminded me of all the wonderful mischief my brothers and I got into when we were young.

Well, except for a disgusting belch after he downed half a can of Coke, but what else is new?

I love everything about this book, including the way she makes pre-teen crushes/romances so sweet. I am, however, surprised that 13 year olds "date"

"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" —Midwest Children's Book ReviewSammy should have known better than to think 8th grade would be easier than 7th. It's only September and already the history teacher is receiving death threats. Naturally, Sammy is the prime suspect. To make matters worse, officer Borsch has asked Sammy to help out at his wedding. If she doesn't find the real prankster fast, Sammy will be wearing prison stripes instead of a poofy pastel bridesmaid dress.This latest Sammy Keyes adventure blends mystery, comedy, and a dusting of fairy tale magic as Sammy takes off her high-tops, puts on some party shoes, and steps into a whole lot of trouble. The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.

Sammy Keyes is one of my favorite teen detectives working today. In this, the thirteenth book in the series, Sammy is finally starting eighth grade. She's still secretly living with her grandmother in a seniors-only highrise, but Officer Borsch, her nemesis in the first several books, is now in on her secret. In fact, they get along so well that Sammy is even part of his upcoming wedding!

Things are not going as well at school. Sammy is in the hated Mr. Vince's home room and History class, and she doesn't have nearly enough classes with her best friends Marissa, Dot, and Holly. She also sees far too much of Heather Acosta, and Sammy's almost-boyfriend Casey Acosta has left for high school and is ducking her calls. When someone starts threatening to kill Mr. Vince, Sammy finds herself and her friend Billy Pratt at the top of the suspect list. Can Sammy clear her name and make it to the church for Officer Borsch's wedding? And what is up with Casey?

The Sammy Keyes books are extremely likable, and while they're appropriate for middle grade readers, Sammy's hilarious escapades will appeal to older readers as well. If you haven't picked up this series, you are missing out.

I am a grown up who played all the Sammy Keys novels in the car to my 3 children. They now say that they are "too old" for them. I couldn't wait to hear what happened between Sammy and her friends and family. This book was so satisfying. I laughed, and cried and didn't want it to end.

My granddaughter was reading this book and since she lives a great distance from me, I wanted to share in something she was doing so I started reading the book. I thought I was doing it for her and then I realized how good the book was. It was fun to try to figure out who the prankster was. Very well written.

I sent the "Sammy Keyes" series to my granddaughter for summer reading. She loves the books and I will send her the rest in the series.

Sammy's history teacher, Mr. Vince, is disgusting. He chews tobacco and spits in a cup he keeps in his desk drawer. He scratches where no one wants to see anyone scratching. Plus, he hates kids, despises teaching, uses offensive language, and is always in a rotten mood. He and Sammy have had unpleasant dealings in the past, too. So it's not surprising that she is displeased with getting him for her eighth grade homeroom as well as history class. Try as she might, though, she can't get out of it.

To pile insult onto insult, Heather Acosta, Sammy's nemesis (and, unfortunately, her boyfriend Casey's sister), is in her history class. Heather proceeds to inform Sammy that Casey is hanging around with a new girl. Since Casey is in high school, Sammy doesn't see him at her school. And he has not contacted her for more than a week. Of course, there's the whole other complication, too: "Lady Lana," aka Sammy's soap opera star mother, is romantically involved with Casey's father.

One day, under the watchful eye of the new vice principal, Mr. Vince is reluctantly apologizing to the class for some of his repulsive comments. He yanks up the projection screen. Under it, written in big red letters on the whiteboard, is the message "DIE DUDE!" Caught by surprise, Sammy bursts out laughing. Infuriated, Mr. Vince informs her that death threats are felonies and that people can get arrested for making them.

Unfortunately, other students tend to believe that Sammy's prank-loving friend Billy penned the message, but Billy staunchly denies having anything to do with it. Then Sammy discovers that at least one student believes she is the one who wrote the threat.

School problems are not enough of a complication in Sammy's world. Although she agreed to be in charge of the guestbook for Officer Borsch's wedding to Debra, she discovers she's been promoted --- to bridesmaid! This news gives her a very strong premonition that the wedding is not going to run smoothly (and, boy, is she right about that). Sammy's heart sinks when she gets a look at the costume she must wear for the wedding. It's the puffiest, frilliest, most lavender dress ever, which is the opposite of her preferred outfit of high-tops, jeans and T-shirts.

Sammy is distracted by the wedding shenanigans as she skateboards toward home. Suddenly she realizes she's zipping along in front of Heather and her mother's house. Then she sees Casey and his dad, who are carrying furniture into the house. Could Casey's dad be moving back in with Heather's mom? That would be terrible news for Lady Lana. Sammy is pondering this possible turn of events when she realizes that Casey isn't even greeting her. His dad looks appalled to see her, and soon the cat is out of the bag with news that infuriates her. But as the death threats against Mr. Vince escalate, Sammy finds herself in such serious trouble that parental escapades fade in relative importance.

As always, author Wendelin Van Draanen depicts her characters realistically and with great laugh-out-loud humor (the phrase "target practice" will never be quite the same to readers!), as well as portraying some truly emotional moments. The climactic scene is exciting, scary and hilarious, complete with a quite unexpected twist in the mystery plot. Rough-edged Sammy remains true to herself, while also enjoying a bit of sweet romance. This is yet another enjoyable page-turner in a vital and evolving mystery series.

Sammy has a lot going on the first weeks of the new school year and her homeroom teacher is getting death threats... which everyone thinks is from her! Romance is in the air, but poor Sammy is having big time boy trouble. Fun twists and turns to the end.
I've read every Sammy Keyes book in the series and also bought all of them for my school's library. You don't have to read the books in order, but it is helpful to do so. The kids at my school love them! I enjoyed this latest mystery even though Sammy isn't in as much danger as she has been in before. There are some laughs, lots of complications in her personal life, and an awful teacher who keeps receiving death threats - and of course, Sammy is a top suspect! If you're a fan, you'll want to read this latest installment!
