Nothing Bad Is Going To Happen by Kathleen Hale
Kippy Bushman, Book 2
Teenage sleuth Kippy Bushman is back in this murderously funny sequel to No One Else Can Have You, which was named one of Time’s Best Young Adult Books of the Year. Even more shocking and thrilling than its critically acclaimed predecessor, Nothing Bad Is Going to Happen is another clever, riotous dark comedy from Kathleen Hale that’s perfect for fans of the cult-classic film Fargo, the beloved television show Veronica Mars, and teen books like Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Friendship, Wisconsin . . .
After catching her best friend’s murderer a few months ago, Kippy thought the worst was over. Then she found her boyfriend at home, barely breathing and clinging to life. The sheriff insists it was a suicide attempt, but Kippy refuses to believe it. And with everything that’s happened to her, Kippy wonders if something more sinister is going on. But in a town where everyone has their secrets and a next-door neighbor could be a serial killer, who can she turn to for help?
“Reading this book is like poring over a cold-case file alone in a large room, late at night…if that cold-case file were also hilarious. I hope if I am ever murdered, Kippy Bushman takes up the case. I also hope that I am not murdered.” -John Mulaney
