Overview

"In Dania Ramos's heart-warming and engaging tale, seventh-grader Ignacio Soto encounters mysteries as large as the universe and a couple that sometimes feel even larger - his friends and family." – Dan Poblocki, author of the Shadow House series

Praise for Dania Ramos's first Seventh Grade Sleuths book, WHO'S JU:

"A diverse mystery novel that goes deeper than the typical whodunit to examine issues of identity and family." – School Library Journal

"A solid entry into tween realistic fiction." – VOYA

"At a time when the publishing world is in desperate need for more diversity in children's literature, Ramos has introduced . . . issues all kids face: Who am I and where do I fit in?" —Crystal Velasquez, author of the Your Life, But . . . series

Dania Ramos's first book, WHO'S JU (2015), introduced Justina 'Ju' Feliciano and her fellow middle school detectives. That first volume won an International Latino Book Award, was runner-up for the ILBA Mariposa Award for best first book, and was nominated for a Sakura Medal..

In her newest, IGNACIO IN THE DARK, "Ig" Soto is thrilled when his fellow Seventh Grade Sleuths, Ju and Gunther, join him at the Lenape Environmental Center to explore the night sky at a state-of-the-art astronomical observatory. But the three friends are horrified when the enormous telescope moves eerily, all on its own, endangering dozens of visitors.

Has someone sabotaged it? Has it been possessed? Are spies hacking into the observatory computer? The amateur detectives take on the Case of the Out-of-Control Telescope, as the center's popular Festival of Matter draws near.

But keeping the clue-hunting under wraps gets sticky when the festival brings some big-shot astrophysicists into town, including one with a close personal connection to Ig. This shocking development will change Ignacio's life forever, forcing him to question how he perceives the past, and his own place in the universe.
