Against my better judgment is a mystery, young adult fiction story about Sara Donavan, a freshman at the University of Alabama. She also works part-time at a museum gift shop. After purchasing a funerary mask, she receives a mysterious phone call, and that’s when she realizes her find is a unique stolen artifact. A once thought cheap souvenir is now a hot commodity, and to add more fun to the mix, a dashing teacher assistant joins the university.
The literature is filled with humor and fun. I read so many pleasurable remarks from the protagonist and found myself laughing at her mistakes as she was truly a horrible detective. Her intrigue was admirable, and since I too like historical artifacts, I found the story very pleasurable to read.
The pace was steady, and Sara was a beloved character. The book was definitely suited for its genre, and the author proved to be a great storyteller. It is an adventure, and the college girl turning into a sleuth really suited the protagonist’s personality and persona. The added love, romance, snappy dialogue blended well with the mix.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read funny mystery, young adult stories.Tweet
