Her first day not in school (because she cut) in her new hometown that will soon be her old hometown (because she's getting out of Dodge as fast as she can) Zoe meets Digby. Or rather, Digby decides he's going to meet Zoe and get her to help him find missing teenager. Zoe isn't sure how, but Digby—the odd and brilliant and somehow…attractive?—Digby always gets what he wants, including her help on several illegal ventures. Before she knows it, Zoe has vandalized an office complex with fake snow, pretended to buy drugs alongside a handsome football player dressed like the Hulk, had a throw-down with a possible cult, and, oh yeah, saved her new hometown (which might be worth making her permanent hometown after all.)
A mystery where catching the crook isn't the only hook, a romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a story about friendship where they aren't even sure they like each other—Trouble is a Friend of Mine is a YA debut you won’t soon forget.

So it seems I read this back in July. MMM well I guess that goes to show you how much books don't stick with me. It seems some of them do and others just don't.
So this one the second time around was a little better although I still felt like the plot didn't go as far as I would have liked and it was very repetitive the plot etc was a little better. The MC was still a push over and the friend I really just felt like slapping him in the first few chapters. Crazy Stalker comes to mine. But in the end it was a solid three stars. So pick it up and try it.
