Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
An oil spill into the bay by the East Brother Lighthouse has sparked this story. Oil is spreading with the tides washing up on beaches and into the marshland for miles. Julie is the Student Council President and wants the school to participate in raising money to help cleanup the oil and help the sea birds that have been caught in the mess. Her idea for raising the money is a patchwork quilt which will depict the facets of ocean life. She meets a wealthy man named Mr. Vernon. His wife wants to donate a Fender Stratocaster guitar, but he cannot seem to part with it from his collection. The mystery begins when Julie's best friend TJ is asked to cat sit for the Vernons since the cat is fond of him and very particular. While cat sitting, TJ wants to get a closer look at the special guitar. The cat jumps up on TJ and startles him and TJ accidentally drops the guitar and breaks it. Afraid of the consequences TJ hides away in an empty apartment above Julie's. She hears the creaking footsteps and investigates. Discovering TJ there he explains his situation and asks for her help. After taking the guitar to a shop for repairs they discover that it is a fake. The mystery is to find the thief of the original guitar. In the meantime, Julie must find the time to prepare for the auction, work with her group to get the quilt finished as well as help solve the mystery. Young girls will enjoy solving this mystery along with Julie and learn about oil spills and their cleanup. The American Girl collection is an excellent series for young girls. Readers will learn about the past as well as the present day experiences from girls their own age. Fun reads for all. Part of the "A Julie Mystery" series. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard

    I Also Recommend:

    Not the Usual Suspects.

    "Not the Usual Suspects." **Great for silent sustained reading as well as "fun-time" reading.This novel has a well-developed storyline and characters that will pique your curiosity and interest as well as hold your attention until the last page. There are plenty of suspects with various motives, yet you maybe surprised by the outcome. Until the end the suspects I had in mind turned out not to be correct. This novel, "The Silver Guitar: A Julie Mystery" by Kathryn Reiss, was delightful for pleasure/leisure reading. If you enjoy mystery and suspense, this novel is sure to be one you'll enjoy.
