This book was suggested by a children's librarian from Michigan who emailed that this book

"seems to me to have so many things going for it. The humor, the use of e-mails to forward the plot and develop character, strong mystery plot, the development of friendships and youthful independence as the kids work together for a cause, all come together without being clouded by dark, undue 21st century angst."

Thanks for the suggestion!

I thought the voice wavered between one a child would have and one an adult would have. That kept throwing me out of the book. It was good but not really anything new.

I too, thought this was a good book. Nothing profound, but a good read with a nice, but predictable, ending. I wish French would have added Julian's mother to the ending...I felt that relationship was brought into the book, then left hanging at the end.
