New York Times and USA Today bestseller

New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson delivers the witty and pulse-pounding conclusion to the Truly Devious series as Stevie Bell solves the mystery that has haunted Ellingham Academy for over 75 years.

Ellingham Academy must be cursed. Three people are now dead. One, a victim of either a prank gone wrong or a murder. Another, dead by misadventure. And now, an accident in Burlington has claimed another life. All three in the wrong place at the wrong time. All at the exact moment of Stevie's greatest triumph . . .

She knows who Truly Devious is. She's solved it. The greatest case of the century.

At least, she thinks she has. With this latest tragedy, it's hard to concentrate on the past. Not only has someone died in town, but David disappeared of his own free will and is up to something. Stevie is sure that somehow--somehow--all these things connect. The three deaths in the present. The deaths in the past. The missing Alice Ellingham and the missing David Eastman. Somewhere in this place of riddles and puzzles there must be answers.

Then another accident occurs as a massive storm heads toward Vermont. This is too much for the parents and administrators. Read More chevron_right

   solution to the case!
I finished the series and was not disappointed! I feel like every book got better and better! I love the complications of the plot in this novel and the way it developed! '' I loved the dramatic irony and knowing things that characters do not know. I also came to like Stevie more, because she makes sense and I love how she makes her anxiety work for her in the end. I also wonder if she is autistic because of her behavior in all 3 novels.
   Great ending to the Truly Devious series
The third book in the Truly Devious series gives finality to all the mysteries that have occurred. I enjoyed Stevie as a character and a teenage detective. She is cunning and the way her mind picked pieces really kept the plot moving and me on my toes. Maureen Johnson writes such a descriptive setting that leaves a snowstorm on the horizon as it should be for the characters concerned. I also enjoyed the dual timeline and solving a mystery from 1936 at the same time as the present day mystery.
   Boring and filled with useless details for pages
This series started off cool and ended up really sucking balls. I could not get into the Hunter - romance - thing, and I feel like Stevie and David were just thrown away for some hype. This book was very drawn and extremely boring. I believe the author's favorite writer is Agatha Christie, but Agatha's novels were filled with suspense in each chapter, not describing the most minute details for pages. One final thought, anyway. I feel like the book publishing company wanted to sell three books of course for more sales or it was the authors'idea just to have more sales. Who knows? All I know is that she could put this book together in a book. Conclusion: Buy this series don 't.
   You need to read this!
I have said it before and I say it again Maureen Johnson writes everything so visual. You are at Ellingham Academy, but also in Stevie's mind, putting everything together. There are so many secrets that are revealed and all plot points be it from the first book or second or even this one wrapped up. Thankfully, this mystery is wrapped up, but I can not wait for Book 4 to come out alone!
   Nicely layered mysteries
Every time we see the details, more information is added until we can see the trajectory. I love the fun characters and the separation between children and adults, though some adults are actually helpful. The two story lines, past and present, are masterfully intertwined, making us care equally about both time periods. The romance is just right.
This is a comfort food if it was a book. This book is not objectively special. Some parts are a little repetitive and drawn out. How all the little details are added up is amazing. The only unbelievable part is that no one else questions whether Alice was adopted or not. I think my absolute favorite part was Larry ''. He is the father figure detective man that needs every book. Nate also loves me. This series is meant for all children who grew up reading Nancy Drew. When finished it has that exact same flourish and the feeling of satisfaction. That said, it is not as good for me as the Rachel Lynn Barnes mysteries. I just like my mysteries when they have more unbelievableness to them.
   4 Stars
This ending I really enjoyed it! '' Finally the mystery of Ellingham Academy is solved. There was one thing to type out, but the other reveal was pretty good. I was very pleased with the end result of this book! I learned that there will be another book in this series in which Stevie goes another way to solve a mystery. Are there another trilogy in the works? What can I expect from you?
   Great end to the trilogy
I was so excited to read the final installment in the Truly Devious series. This YA mystery trilogy was the perfect blend of contemporary high school whodunnit and old school drama. I loved the dual timelines and the ability to have both mysteries solved and intertwined. Having the pieces fall into place was really fun to watch as Stevie works the mystery. I can 't wait to see what other creative mysteries we get from Maureen Johnson. Meanwhile, I recommend this to all lovers of literary sleuths. • High rating for clean schoolers discussing sex.
   A Little Lackluster and Mostly Forgettable (But you get all the Answers)
Which is kind of disappointing as a series Finale, but not too bad as an individual book. I feel like I was just let down because the mystery of the present day was always my least favorite compared to the Ellingham mystery of the '30s and I think we got a lot of satisfying answers in the previous book. But I can say that I liked how the story ended and I do think that all the resolutions fit within the story and made sense how Stevie laid everything out. In general, this finale worked for me, but I didn 't have those many expectations. The mystery of the 1930s was still my favorite part and I kind of ignore the modern characters problems and it worked for me.
Cow is a cow. This is the last book in this series, everything has been solved AHHH. I love how Maureen Johnson wrapped everything up, it made sense and it left me gasping in some parts. Like Wow, she is such a talented author. I love this series so much and even though I say all the time that I would never reread a thriller, I would reread this mystery series just for the characters! I adore Nate and Vi and Janelle, they are all fantastic The one character I never liked in this series is David, but otherwise this was just fantastic and everyone needs to read this series more. I SO MUCH ADORE IT.
