“The Bloody Shoe Affair” by Joy York. I bought this book to read and review as a member of RRBC. This genre was my favorite as a teenager until I found romances. “The Bloody Shoe Affair” by Joy York, is a nice YA read, especially for girls, since the two main characters are girls, Christi and Lily. Joy brings out the scenes nicely and both girls characters are brought forth nicely as well. The story was bumpy throughout, and really didn’t start to fly until almost one third of the way into the book but the girls really shined. The suspense and the little bit of romance helped in rounding out the story line. Joy York certainly has the appeal for understanding teenagers and the ability to write about them in a manner that truly to speak to teenagers. Nicely done.
