{Review} Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer - Katie Alender

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender
Genre: YA Mystery
Release Date: Sept 24 / 2013
Publisher: Scholastic
Colette Iselin is excited to go to Paris on a class trip. She’ll get to soak up the beauty and culture, and maybe even learn something about her family’s French roots.
But a series of gruesome murders are taking place across the city, putting everyone on edge. And as she tours museums and palaces, Colette keeps seeing a strange vision: a pale woman in a ball gown and powdered wig, who looks suspiciously like Marie Antoinette.
Colette knows her popular, status-obsessed friends won’t believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy. Together, they uncover a shocking secret involving a dark, hidden history. When Colette realizes she herself may hold the key to the mystery, her own life is suddenly in danger...
Acclaimed author Katie Alender brings heart-stopping suspense to this story of revenge, betrayal, intrigue — and one killer queen.

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer was a mystery story set in Paris. The whole Marie Antoinette thing was what made me interested in the story and I liked it. There were murders going on all over Paris and Colette had a feeling it had something to do with her.

This is a story of friendship and love. Colette had to choose her own friends and all the while going on mystery solving time with the charming French boy. The mystery part was really great and I didn't really know why Marie Antoinette was killing all these people. The book also had some French in it (which I understood). Looks like all the French lessons at school paid off haha.

Overall, this is quite a mediocore book but I would still encourage mystery fans to try it out.
