Another wonderful American Girl book...this time for slightly older children (10 and up). Samantha stars in her own mystery story along with Nellie and her sisters. Perfect first mystery for girls growing out of chapter books.
If you're and American Girl lover, you can keep the fun going with the Mystery novels.
Personally, I thought the "Mystery" was a little cheesy, even for ages 9 and up. In any case however, it was great to have the characters back to read about in a new story however, that is longer and different from the other Samantha stories.
The one thing that was lacking from this book was the phenomenal pictures American Girl books are famous for. If you ever just found the pictures distracting however, this book will not disappoint.
