Author: Leah Spiegel and Meg Summers
Series: South Hills Sidekicks #1
Publication date: February 11th 2012
Genre: Humorous YA Chick-Lit


"When Alley started her senior year at Upper East High in the South Hills area, it was supposed to be the usual drag of hanging out with people who spent more on one outfit than Alley did on her entire wardrobe. That was until Kirsten, a girl in their clique, suddenly goes missing and the only people who seem to care are her friends. All evidence leads to the new comer Shane, a cocky and self-pretentious person in Alley’s opinion, but the police seem uninterested so she and the rest of the girls start a little investigation of their own. But they are nowhere closer to finding Kirsten than when they started and now they had the police’s attention; just not in the way they expected. The girls have to start over and discover that maybe it wasn’t an outsider who took Kirsten, but someone within their own clique who has something to hide; a secret that just might have gotten Kirsten killed."


Here's an excerpt!
~As if reading my thoughts, Val clapped her hands and exclaimed, “Yahh, pretzel bites!”
Driving around to the back of the mall where the entrance to the food court was located, I noticed the smile suddenly dropped from her face when she realized I wasn’t searching for a parking space; it could easily take up to fifteen minutes to find one in the cramped lot.
“If I park upfront and you run in, we won’t be late,” I explained as I pulled my jeep up to the curb of the sidewalk.
“Yahh, pretzel bites,” Val repeated a little less enthusiastically, causing me to laugh before she got out of the car and shut the door.

~I was just about to bury the hatchet and introduce myself, when his eyes dropped to Val’s pink, glittery high heel shoes and he muttered, “Nice shoes.”
“I know, aren’t they fabulous?” Val marveled at them.
I was just about to explain to her what he really meant when he snickered, “Yeah, Dorothy called, she wants them back.”
Now Val might be overly enthusiastic, but I loved her for it, so I wasn’t going to let some stuck-up jock put her down. I opened my mouth to ask him what kind of self-respecting, straight guy notices shoes anyway, but Val beat me to a response. “Well, you tell Dorothy that if she wants them back, she’s going to have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands.”
His face pinched at the unexpectedness of her comment, but instead of encouraging her, he just blinked and then shook his head.

Val clicked her heels together three times and said, “There’s no place like Prada, there’s no place like Prada.” 

Author Bio(s)

Although we moved down to North Carolina several years ago, we’re originally from the Pittsburgh area. (That’s why a lot of our characters either live in the Burgh or reference our hometown football team, The Pittsburgh Steelers.) And yes, we even have the Southern accents to show for it now. Although Megan’s is considerable thicker, Leah still can’t understand the locals.
We are known as ‘the sisters’ among our neighborhood; when actually we’re probably really known as ‘the sisters with the Yorkies’. Our pups, Skippy Jon Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, were given long names to compensate for their small size but not their large personalities.
If Leah’s not glued to her electronic devices, AKA her Kindle Fire and various laptops, you can find her training ‘the attack dogs’, running on the treadmill while conceiving the next great book idea with the Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Florence and the Machine, The Lumineers, and Pink (just to name a few) blaring out of her earphones.
If Megan’s not glued to her electronic devices AKA her iPad and Nook Color, you can find her teaching fourth graders, swimming marathon style at the pool, or cuddling with ‘the attack dogs’ as she watches Duck Dynasty, Gold Rush, Scandal, Person of Interest, Morning Joe, etc.
Leah graduated from Edinboro University with a BA in Art Education. Megan received her teaching degree from Edinboro University and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology from Grand Canyon University.
