Family Rules: Family business is family business - don’t talk about it to ANYONE

No sneaking out

No going into Boston alone

Moxie Fleece knows the rules and follows them — that is, until the day she opens her front door to a mysterious stranger. Suddenly, Moxie drops smack into Boston’s biggest unsolved mystery: the Gardner Museum art heist. Moxie has two weeks to find the art, otherwise she — and the people she loves — will be in big-time danger.

Her tools? Her best friend, Ollie, a geocaching addict who loves to find stuff; her Alzheimer’s suffering grandfather, Grumps, who knows lots more than he lets on; and a geometry proof that she sets up to sort out the clues.

It’s a race against the clock through downtown Boston as Moxie and Ollie break every rule she’s ever lived by to find the art and save her family.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking:

Edgar Award Finalist

“Teens will like Moxie and Ollie for their believable adolescent responses and admire them for their sophisticated Internet skills and geocaching expertise, both of which enable them to outsmart gangsters and the FBI. Fans of Blue Balliett’s Chasing Vermeer (2004) will appreciate the similarities.” —Booklist

“[A] fast-paced, National Treasure–style mystery... [a] breathless, action-packed tale.”—Kirkus

“…the believable dialogue and characters, complicated family dynamics, and threat of danger make this mystery hard to put down.”—PW

“[A] breathless thrill-ride. With the recent announcement that the FBI knows the identities of the Gardner art thieves and is continuing its search for the missing works, this title is especially relevant.”—SLJ

“A thoroughly enjoyable adventure…readers will enjoy this suspenseful read; Moxie and Ollie are likeable characters.”—Library Media Connection


School Library Journal - Audio
Gr 6–9—Moxie Fleece, 13, knows that you have to keep the family rules. Then, one day, she accidentally opens the door to a redheaded stranger. She's told that she has two weeks to find the "stuff" that her grandpa Grumps hid for Sully Cupcakes or else bad things will happen. Moxie discovers that her grandpa, who now has Alzheimer's, was involved in the Gardner Museum Art Heist. With little more than a photo album and the ramblings of Grumps, Moxie creates a geometry proof to help guide her and her best friend Ollie, a geocaching addict, through the adventure of a lifetime. Will Moxie find the art in time to save her family? Amy McFadden has an authentic Bostonian accent that captivates and transports listeners into the teenager's world. Her intonations and unique narrative style masterfully bring to life the girl's internal strife. The characters are well developed and engaging, and the mix of humor and mystery will hook listeners. A perfect choice for students who enjoy mystery and adventure with a little bit of laughter.—Jessica Moody, Olympus Jr. High, Holladay, UT
