sleuth or dare Partners in Crime
by Kim Harrington
. . . is the latest book I've read.
I obtained this book from the Kellogg's Family Rewards Program.
Both girls are smart, but Darcy and Norah are different as salt and pepper. Darcy dresses in black and purple, lives and breathes the internet and computers and gets in trouble on a regular basis. Norah is a goody-goody and loves to help people. They have to create a fake business for a school project, but they don't want to do the ordinary like dog walking or pet sitting. They decide to set up a website for their fake business - a detective agency called Partners in Crime.
To their surprise, their fake agency gets an email about a real case. Someone wants them to find their twin sister. They jump on the chance to solve a real mystery. Along the way, they get threats from someone who doesn't want them to solve the case. But, that only makes them more determined.
If you like mysteries, this is a fun read of only 29,944 words that I think kids will enjoy reading.
