Product Description

Samantha Westhoff will never forget the night she waved good-bye to her crazy-in-love best friend, Amanda Griffin, as she jumped into her boyfriend's yellow Mustang to go to a birthday party. The next day Randy's gunshot body was discovered behind the wheel of his car in an empty parking lot. Amanda hasn't been seen since.Now, four years later, as seventeen-year-old Sam is helping to sort out Amanda's room, she finds the jacket she's sure Amanda was wearing the night she disappeared. But then, how could it be in her room now? Sam wonders. When she discovers a matchbook hidden deep in the lining of the pocket, Sam knows she might be holding the one clue to what really happened that night.

    Even though you figure out a lot of the details early on, how it plays out is still very interesting.

    In The Sleeping Matchbook, Patricia Stebelton pens a wild and witty mystery young readers of all interests will enjoy. Secrets abound in this inspirational tale of two girls setting out to solve a cold case--but not so cold that it doesn't heat up in a hurry the moment they start poking around.Samantha "Sam" Westbrook" lost a best friend when her neighbor and 'big sister,' Amanda Griffen, left for a birthday party--and never came back. Her boyfriend was found the next morning behind the wheel of his Mustang, shot to death. Amanda hasn't been seen since. What's really strange, is that the school jacket Amanda was wearing that night mysteriously reappears in her closet bearing the only clue as to what might have happened: a single matchbook lodged in the lining beneath a pocket.It's now four years later. Going through Amanda's closet with her mother, seventeen-year old Sam finds the coat and the matchbook, a discovery that sparks a quest to discover just what happened that night. She enlists the help of her new friend, Tracy, and together they face danger and the threat of violence as their sleuthing breaks open old wounds and creates waves that ripple all the way into the highest levels of the police department itself.Physical, emotional and spiritual challenges dog their steps along the way and provide the most meaningful lessons of all for both Sam and Tracy. The Sleeping Matchbook accelerates and explodes in a dynamic ending that neither of the girls expect. You won't either.Good read for the tweenager and teenager, and parents won't have to worry about this one. The moral and spiritual lessons come through loud and clear, but not so loud that they drown out the story. Nice job, Patricia!
