Amanda Jane Keeling, 14, has answered only to the name 'Rebel' since she was two. When she was just a little baby, and such a stubborn baby she was, she would scream and cry until she got what she wanted. Not to mention she was, and still is, extremely rebelious. Her grandmother, sick of the confinements of assisted living, joins an elderly friend, Viola, in buying an old rooming house near the University of Washington. Rebel and Vi's grandson, Moses, are asked to help paint, clean, and get the house ready for roomers. Rebel, at 5'10', is immediately taken with the 6'6' Moses. Much to his father's dismay, Moses wants to write, direct, and produce films rather than enter law. He carries an old video camera around, inadvertently filming a young man as he is grabbing back a $20 bill after purchasing a candy bar at the local mom-and-pop store. This brief encounter sets in motion a nighttime break-in at the old house, a nearly missing Irish wolfhound, and the cracking of a band of young counterfeiters, and, in the end, the teens realize that they should have called on the police sooner rather than sleuthing on their own. Rebel is an engaging, independent character, and will appeal to middle school kids. Although the book starts a bit slow towards the middle, the mystery unfolds and is very suspensful. I liked this book. I thought it was interesting. It could have ended better. It could have also been a little less obvious. If there was a sequel, I would read it just to see what would happen next.

This book was oh so predictable and the book's characters were so clueless that they couldn't even realize the obvious when the answer was apparent to the reader! Do NOT waste your time with this book as you'll only find disappointment.

I expected something better from a good author like Willo Davis Roberts. I was drawn to the cover photo, so i read it. It was good at first, but it turned out being kind of odd. It could have ended better, like, saying something about Rebel and Moses dating or something like that, but i guess it was still pretty good.
