Fake ID by Lamar Giles (not to be confused with Fake ID by Walter Sorrells) is a FakeIDrefreshing teen guy mystery. More of these are needed–and this is prime for a series. Nick Pearson is the new kid in school. On his first day, he accidently bumps into Reya Cruz in the gym. Unfortunately, Reya’s former boyfriend, Lamar, hasn’t gotten the hint that they’ve broken up and he’s the jealous sort. So, in the locker room, Nick gets jumped by Lamar and his friends. Nick’s ass is saved by Eli, the geeky head of the school newspaper.

Nick and Eli become sort of friends and Nick gets roped into working on the newspaper. Several weeks later, Eli is found dead on the newspaper room floor. It’s deemed a suicide but Nick feels/knows differently because Eli was working on a major story. Nick, for several reasons, feels compelled to find out who the murderer is.

FakeID1There are surprises in the beginning that I don’t want to spoil. There is action, suspense, romance going on in Fake ID, in just the right proportions. Lamar Giles is a good writer. I felt that I knew Eli and Nick and the other characters. There are twists and turns that I never saw coming. I really enjoyed Fake ID.

P.S. I also enjoyed Fake ID by Walter Sorrells.  Both books will appeal to the same audience.
