Teaser Tuesday: The Underdogs by Sara Hammel

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"By 'it' you mean...love? Boys?"

"No." Harmony was gesturing forcefully with both hands. "You're missing the point, like the rest of them. She was a beautiful girl. A work of art. And because of that, no one saw past her looks. Sometimes it was as if who she was and what she had to say didn't matter."
This week my teaser comes from The Underdogs by Sara Hammel. I got this eARC from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
Who killed Annabel Harper?

When a popular teen beauty’s body is discovered by the pool at an elite tennis club, the regulars are shocked―especially twelve-year-old Evie and her best friend, Chelsea. While everyone else is haunted by the teen’s death, Evie and Chelsea jump on the case, dogging the footsteps of the lead detective as he investigates. As temperatures soar over the summer, tensions rise, fingers are pointed, and a heroic act sets in motion a chain of events readers will never see coming.

In the tradition of The Westing Game comes this debut mystery with a breathtaking twist.
