¿Cam Jansen and the Secret Service Mystery¿ by David A. Adler is a mystery series book #26. One of the wonderful things about series books is that if a child loves just one of these books, then they may get hooked on reading the whole series. To a young reader mastering reading, this type of commitment is very important since it develops interest in a genre as well as develop reading fluency. The main character is interesting in that she is a modern type of Nancy Drew character. However ¿Cam¿ is unique in that she has a photographic memory that allows her to remember many clues that later help her solve mysteries adults are unable to piece together. The narrative, as well as the language, is simple to follow filled with stock characters that are in the most part supportive and caring people. She is surrounded by friends and family who care about her as she spends her time making the world around her a better place.
