There has been a shocking crime at Mary Todd Lincoln Middle School.
In a glass case in the front hall, a trophy—the trophy, the first trophy ever won in the school's lackluster competitive history—has been stolen.
Even more horrifying, an outraged Principal Van Vreeland has threatened to cancel the eighth graders' long-awaited, once-in-a-lifetime field trip to Taproot Valley unless the trophy is returned.
Self-appointed sleuth extraordinaire Bethesda Fielding is confident she'll be able to track down the culprit and save her class trip. But the clock is ticking, and unless she can solve this baffling mystery, the eighth graders will be doomed to a Week of a Thousand Quizzes instead. . . .

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a cute book. A trophey has been stolen from Mary Todd Lincoln Middle School and Principal Van Vreeland has decided to cancel all activities until the trophey is found. This includes the eighth grade field trip to Taproot Valley. So Bethesda Fielding decides its time to put on her detective hat and find out who did it and save the field trip. I enjoyed reading this book but I do have to say that there were way too many names of people that you are suppose to remember. At times it got confusing but if you stick with it you have a very delightful book. I won this book from Goodreads.
