Strong mystery story line, interesting characters who are facing the many perplexities of youth, child activism, but most importantly, a great bond between a favorite teacher and her students. This is a title that will appeal to many disaffected readers who have talent and drive but find themselves in a cultural backwater and hang on for dear life to that one special bond with a well-liked teacher.
