Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
This novel follows Julie Albright as she tries to solve the mystery of Carla, the new girl in school. Living with her mom and sister in a small apartment after her parents' divorce, Julie always tries to make the most of things and believe the best in people. When Carla joins her class at school, Julie is eager to get to know the girl and be her friend. But the stories Carla tells her just don't fit. Carla says her two brothers go to Maxwell Academy, but there is no such school. Carla points out young "siblings" on the playground, but they turn out to be part of other children's families. And when Julie shows up at Carla's house, the person who lives there says Carla is not his daughter, but rather his dog walker. Some readers might become frustrated that Julie is so easily fooled by Carla; it takes her too long for her to become suspicious and realize Carla is lying. Still, the text is lively, and references to the Vietnam War and San Francisco's "Painted Ladies" are interesting. These historical elements are explored in a "Peek into the Past" section following the story. Part of American Girl's "Julie Mystery" series. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger

    The Tangled Web written by Kathryn Reiss is an American Girl mystery about Julie Albright, an American Girl, or AG, historical character growing up in the 1970's. Julie's parents are divorced, so most of the time, on school days, basically, Julie lives with her mom and older sister, Tracy. On weekends, Julie lives with her dad.

Julie and her other school friends become friends with Carla, and Carla starts to tell Julie stories about her family.

Carla even shows Julie, and her best friend, Ivy her ground house, or "Painted Lady", but for some reason, begs them to leave when a man comes to the house. When Julie's dad take her and Ivy to the farmer's market, they see Carla working at a stand with Barb, and sees Barb point a knife at her. Carla also doesn't have as many items for luch as Julie and her friends do at school. Julie and Ivy are starting to worry for Carla, and think that Carla might be in grave danger. Julie is determined to help and protect her friend, and tries to find ansers, but as she searches for answers, the mystery only seems to get deeper, and Julie has more questions than ever.

Not only will this mystery keep you mystified, and keep guessing for the answers, it will also warm your heart for this book takes place a the time of Thyanksgiving. Julie and her mother and Tracy are even going to host a Thanksgiving party! When you have finished the book, it will make you realize the importance of family, hope, forgiveness, friendship, and giving thanks.
