Teen/Young Adult, Mystery, Mystery/Suspense
Felicity Gains lives up to her name. As a 17-year-old high school senior, she has the world at her feet, and to her this means that she has everything to gain in her own selfish, conceited world, and does whatever she has to do to keep having the two things that are the most important to her — fun and attention, as well as living in the moment now. But she likes to have fun at other people’s expense, and always strives to get the kind of attention she feels that she’s entitled to at whatever cost, and that includes not caring about who she hurts in the process because she accepts no responsibility for what she does, and doesn’t listen to her best friend Erin, who tries to talk to her about her illicit behavior and the consequences of it — but it’s useless.
Felicity is a self-proclaimed fun girl and is beautiful but not too intelligent, and definitely unapologetic about what her idea of fun really is. And even though she wants everyone to see her as this type of girl, everyone who knows her — and even those who don’t know her — will never see her this way, and because of this, she has the real reputation of being a type of girl that no girl would want to have her name associated with. But since she only cares about herself and not how she treats others, she gets herself into too many incidents to count, but there’s one incident that she may never get out of, and two restless cops are in a race against time to see who could be involved in this particular incident before it’s too late, and they have too many suspects that Felicity has caused nonsense to and too many motives to count. But most of their suspects are using two interesting words that describe Felicity’s character, and this really has them thinking about this whole investigation. But then the investigation takes a turn in a way that no one is expecting, and foreshadows an outcome that no one saw coming as some wonder what really happened.
FunGirl is the first book in the FunGirl series.

Erin Tillman, Felicity’s best friend: “Why wouldn’t he be serious about things, Felicity? He knows that not everything is fun and games, and I think that’s a good thing. One day, we’re all gonna have to grow up and face the not-so-fun times way more than the fun times. We can’t live our lives just striving for fun and attention all of the time because that can only go so far.”
“It can go as far as someone would want it to go,” Felicity said. “I’m living in the moment now. I’m not even thinking about a year from now. This is the time to have fun. This is the time to want attention. Why the hell would I wait until I’m too old to have fun and get attention? Let’s face it, I’m not gonna look like this twenty, thirty years from now so I wanna take advantage of how it is for me right now.”
“I can understand that, Felicity, but it’s the way you go about it.”
“And what way is that?”
“Your need for attention and having fun is bringing more negativity to it than anything, you have to admit that.”
Felicity glared at her as she sipped her soda; she put it down. “And how is it negative, Erin?”
“It’s negative because you wanna have fun at other people’s expense. You like to flirt with guys who have girlfriends, and love it when these girls get mad. You want this attention from these guys and they think that you really like them and they wanna get to know you more, but then you tell them that you have a boyfriend so that’s not possible.”
