    Highly Recommended

    One day in class like any other day, Sophie looks out the window at school and thinks she sees a ghost in the window of the building next door and screams. She and her friends decide that during lunch they are going to investigate. They end up sneaking through the church and "breaking in" to the upper floors which connect the church to the adjacent building where the old Ms. Harriman resides. Ms Harriman of course finds them snooping and befriends them. Eventually Ms Harriman decides to send these girls on a quest to find a missing birthday present that her father and meant to pass on to her daughter before he passed. But sadly the first note with the clues on how to find the present had been stored in a book and left for 20 years. As the girls solve one clue it leads them to another clue.

    What I loved about this story is that the girls are hilarious. I found myself very amused with the dialogue and their reactions. They had me laughing in every chapter.
    The thing I found different in this book than others that are similar, is the way the clues are handled. The girls have to solve several types of problems, English, Math, etc. But the way that the book is written the girls explain the problems as they work through them. I of course would not have figured out these things on my own if I had to, but they all were very logical and interesting. I felt very accomplished when I found the answer to one of the clues before they did, then there was a twist I didn't see coming adding to my enjoyment of the puzzle. I was amazed the girls could figure out the very educational clues and seemed very advanced for their ages. (7th grade).
    I learned as I read and not only that, I found out new things that I want to continue exploring. For example I think I found a brand new interest in reading the classics, especially Dickens. There was even a chapter or two with math equations and you HAD to work out the problem to continue reading. (you will not be graded of course) and they walk you through the answer in the next chapter. With graphs as well as verbal explanations.
    I highly recommend these books, fantastic reads, very entertaining and enjoyable. I felt like I was one of their group and on a fantastic treasure hunt working through the clues along with them.

    A true literature gem!!!!!!!!

    Not only is the plot amazing, but the way the author writes really enhances the beauty of the book. The characters are all so funny. I hope the author keeps writing these because if he does I will certainly keep reading.

    Bookworm

    This book is really good. I love the humor and the things they talk about. Sometimes they curse in the book, as they do often. Also some of the math in the book is hard to understand. I skipped through the math a little. But the book is still really good.

    Intelligent, Interesting, Engaging, Fun

    Great adventure mystery series. Author has a great concept here and keeps the story interesting from the beginning through to the end. I also like that he never dumbs down or condescends to the reader (unlike many other YA or children's writers). This book also has a good plot and coherent story, again unlike all too many recent books.

    Pager turner with spice

    This book was very well written. It is fresh and modern but, as a young catholic teen the young women. (even the intelligent) were using God's name in vain. That is a serious breaking of the commandments and a missed throw for the author. Very dissapointed that someone can offend a holy person and a religion like that. But don' t be fooled it is a dazzling book.

    I Also Recommend:

    I LOVED this mystery!

    The Red Blazer Girls is a fantastic, interesting mystery! The characters are spunky, funny, and entertaining. I especially enjoyed the clues and search for the ring. I am impressed at how the author integrated math clues into the story. Highly recommended for middle grade readers who enjoy Nancy Drew, Sammy Keyes, and Kari and Lucas mysteries.
