So good! I first read this when I was younger and I ordered it from this site because you never outgrown good books. This is a keeper! Lily A. Watson is a dynamic character and her interesting way of solving a mystery hooks you right in. And the mystery is pretty hard to solve for a kid's story. Out of all of Kate Klise's books, this one is my favorite.
