A really great book! Perfect for middle grade readers 8 to 12 years old, and plenty of older readers who are young at heart. The story holds exciting adventure, surprises, suspense and lots of witty banter. The main character, Dana, is a girl who is not afraid to get muddy or break a nail. In fact both girls speak their minds and fight with their fists. I really enjoyed the action packed sequences. I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next. It's refreshing to read about girl characters that aren't wimps or held back in some way. Will read the sequel next!
