While staying with her father at a tree-planting camp in the Canadian wilderness, twelve-year-old Stevie discovers that she can combine babysitting with detective work.
Pre-teen sleuths Stevie and Jesse test their detection skills once again in this fast-paced mystery. When a resolution is reached, it is satisfying and unforced. The real highlight, however, is the characterization. Stevie is realistic and appealing as the spunky, independent heroine. Easy-going Jesse makes a good foil.
[The nimble plot development and integration of the unique setting into the story line make this Canadian import, the second “Stevie Diamond Mystery,” a cut above most detective series for this age group.
Middle-school mystery fans will enjoy Bailey’s entertaining story: clues are nicely place, the plot unfolds at a brisk pace, and Stevie is an engaging heroine who botches things up believably.

I think that this book was very good. It held my attention throughout the whole book. Sometimes I would just keep reading chapter after chapter. The author has quite an imagination. I'm going to purchase some of the other books in the series also!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
