    Exhilarating action paced mystery

    Funded by a full ride scholarship, Jeri McKane attends swanky Landmark Boarding School. On the end of the "have not's" Jerri feels out of place amongst the "haves." Overwhelmed by homesickness Jeri soon becomes distracted with an unexpected mystery ready to be solved. Her roommate Rosa and several other classmates disappear into thin air while en-route back to Landmark via school bus. How is this possible, when there is only one way in and out on the mountain? Jeri's keen reporting and research skills are put to the test at this time of crisis. Especially, since the adults in charge do not seem to be making any progress in their search and rescue attempts.

    Jeri decides to conduct her own investigation, much to the chagrin of the authority figures in charge. Navigating the twists and turns and sorting the truths from the lies, Jeri makes a startling discovery. But can she make it in time?

    Kristi Holl presents an action paced mystery with the power of one's faith for an exhilarating read.

    Great for Nancy drew Fans

    This is a new mystery series that is aimed at the tweener set and revolves around the lives of girls at the Landmark School for Girls. It's set a a boarding school location, which I adore because for some reason, I find boarding schools to be fascinating. Jeri is a character that is dealing with her parents divorce and feeling that she's not an important factor in her lives.Therefore she throws herself into her life at school to forget about those problems. Her character is very dimensional and grows throughout the story. She's very likable and if I were that age, I would like to have her as a friend. I thought the mystery was really good as it took me a while to figure out what really had happened to the missing students. It was quite intense and more complicated than what I had expected.

    While it's a cute story and has a really good mystery for the younger set, there were some parts of the book I felt to be unbelievable. I just didn't buy some of the responses of the adults in the story. I also didn't like the headmistress and how she handled the situation. There are some parts that may be too intense for young readers such as child abduction and possible death. Therefore I would say this book is for at least readers of the tween age. However for those who can handle it, it's a great read and a fun way to spend an afternoon reading. These are perfect for Nancy Drew fans who are looking for something different to read. If you have a tween that loves mysteries, this book is definitely recommended.
