With the official reopening of Brady’s and their sophomore year beginning, Maddie, Cornelious, Carly and Pilot are ready to shift their focus back to high school. Unfortunately, a month into the new school year many Asburyans find their bank accounts depleted, with no hint of foul play. Even the bank tellers insist that each withdrawal was done in person, with proper identification supplied and correct responses given to security questions.

Pilot, excited at the possibility of working with a cyber-crime, urges the gang to dive in—only to discover there are no traces of wrongdoing online either. Instantly intrigued, the gang decides to investigate the case before their own family’s accounts get hit.

However, with their successful sports teams, the continued growth and organization of the Pitbulls, possible new relationships blooming, dating and unrealized jealousies coming to the surface, the teenage sleuths find themselves more distracted than ever. After piecing together some clues, they wonder if someone in Asbury High is to blame for yet another crime.

Can Asbury’s favorite foursome figure out who is to blame before Asbury itself goes bankrupt?

Asbury High and the MisTaken Identities is the third book in an enticing young adult cozy mystery series that fans of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys and Scooby Doo will love.


What’s Your New Years Resolution? Cornelious

                Q: Cornelious Jeremiah Gibbz, heir to billions and son of Governor and Mayor of Asbury…it’s getting close to the New Year, do you have any resolutions?

                A: Hi…um, yeah I guess if I think it over, I do have a few.

                Number one would be to win the state finals in basketball this year. We’re doing pretty solid in the conference and have a chance, though I think our underclassmen are taking it a bit more seriously.

                Number two, sticking with the basketball, would be to increase my shooting percentage, ever so slightly. I know I’m currently on pace to beat the school record…but I’m really hoping to get a college scholarship in a few years---I know, I know, I can afford not to. But, if you knew me, then you’d know I’m not trying to use any of my parents’ money. It belongs to them, and not only do I intend to leave Asbury without owing them a dime (other than appreciation in raising me), but on my own terms in general.

                Which I guess brings about number three…I should work on my relationship with my dad. But that’s a lot harder than it sounds. He just refuses to listen, unless it directly impacts his political career. And every time we start a semi-serious talk, he launches in and attacks my friends and my lack of connections. I hold myself back but all I want to ask is, who are his friends? Other than my mom, I don’t know a single one.

                And I guess, if I need to pick a fourth, I guess it would be to work through something that’s been on my mind lately. I mean, don’t tell Maddie, but I’ve begun to question our, um, friendship. I don’t mean we should stop being best friends! Far from it… it’s just I’ve been having some weird feelings around her and I know I need to just stop and sort them out. But just talking about it now is making me a little anxious so I think I should end with another resolution, just to take my mind off of this…

                So, number five, um maybe get a dog? The cops already say we’re like the Scooby Doo gang, so why not make it more legit, right?

About Kelly Brady Channick

For as long as she could remember, Kelly Brady Channick loved making up stories, and leaving her listeners/readers on the edge of their seats.

Perhaps that’s why she always managed to talk herself out of trouble…

After graduating from NJ’s own Ocean City High School, Kelly accepted a basketball scholarship to Holy Family University, in Philadelphia. As a lifelong athlete, Kelly understands the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity, something she hopes translates into her books.

Before writing page-turners, she taught first, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade — like a dessert menu, she simply had to test them all out. But her favorite job is the one she’s now doing full time: writing. Kelly loves to craft whodunit mysteries, leading readers through various twists and turns filled with red-herrings, hidden clues, and more peculiar characters than a reality show.

Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, energetic baby boy, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
