A charming debut novel by James W. Fuerst, HUGE is the story of twelve-year-old Eugene “Huge” Smalls. Huge is an amateur sleuth with an off-the-charts IQ. He’s a devotee of Raymond Chandler and the smallest, meanest, angriest kid in the whole sixth grade. Growing up in 1980’s New Jersey, this book picks up at the end of Huge’s last summer before junior high. He’s also been hired to work his first case but before he’s through he’ll confront the town bullies, have a close brush with a femme fatale and realize his fantasy life will only take him so far.
Sounds like a great read alike to The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie another great new novel about a young sleuth named Flavia de Luce. This one just might have YA potential and might be a great pick for your teen readers. HUGE will be released as a trade paperback original in early July.
