Are you ready for a middle grade novel that will have you turning pages to uncover the truth?
Then read on if you dare...
(No spoilers, I promise!)
Like Birdie Adams didn’t have enough problems this summer. But Birdie’s Birdie. And if a long-buried box has "Open if you dare" written on its lid, then Birdie and her best friends, Ally and Rose, are going to open it.
And now, along with everything else that’s going on—Ally’s pitching slump, Rose’s banishment to Britain, and Birdie’s annoying younger sister being, you know, annoying—the best friends are caught up in solving a mystery planted by a dead girl forty years ago.
What would you do it you found a mysterious box in the woods, one that points to a possible murder mystery?
"If you're reading this, I'm already dead"....
Birdie Adams, wannabe girl detective, can't shake the desire to figure out what happened to the girl who buried a box filled clues decades ago, and neither can we, the reader.
The friendships and family dynamics in this book feel true and real, and Dana Middleton has crafted a mystery worthy of her readers.
A mystery, coming-of-age-story, friendship story - this book has it all.
I couldn't put this book down, curious to see where Birdie would take us, and when I finished, was completely satisfied that Middleton had delivered.
This is the first book of Dana Middleton's I've read, but you can be sure I'm going to be buying her first one!
5 stars! I highly recommend this book!
