Author Vonda Skinner Skelton doesn¿t just know how to relate to kids¿she remembers what it¿s like to be one! Bitsy & the Mystery at Amelia Island is a delightful story for pre-teens that will carry them through from start to finish, while subtly instilling the positive message that life is about more than money or looks. As Bitsy visits her friends on Amelia Island, she learns about looking beneath a person¿s gruff exterior and finding a wounded heart longing for companionship. Even as the entrepreneurial twelve-year-old tomboy fails in a business venture and comes out on the losing end of a fist fight with the town bully, Bitsy¿s adventures lead to an entirely new understanding of what it means to ¿enjoy being a girl.¿ Despite talking birds, retired police dogs, and goose-bump raising tales of ghosts and witches, Bitsy, with the help of her friends, manages to unravel a mystery and, in the process, discovers some life-changing secrets about herself.

My daughters and I loved Bitsy in her first book, and we're so glad she's back! She's so flawed and yet so utterly likeable that it's easy to follow along as she sets out to solve another mystery. This is a quick, exciting read with well-developed characters and a solid moral grounding. Very fun!

What a fun, charming book for children and adults! The characters are real, and we feel like we come to know them as the book unfolds. The story is involving, exciting, and above all, uplifiting. Highly recommended.

Bitsy has a grand time visiting her friends on Amelia Island. Not only does she participate in the talent show and fight the ghost haunting the house of a recently deceased man, she also has her dream come true by becoming a local hero and appearing on television. Great job Vonda. --- E :)
