Yes. It's perfect for middle grade kids. An exciting and fun story - An easy story to resonate with!
How Karrine goes about her business. Clever, witty, determined, ambitious, confident, and self-driven. Infectious.
Karrine: Grace Sin provides an upbeat and polished performance of this highly engaging character.
I liked the scene where Karrine went into Mr Jackson's stables, on the pursuit of an employee named: 'Stinker' - It was a very humorous encounter! - And Karrine's comment: 'he was easily ten pounds over the recommended weight of a teenager' - that made me laugh!
This second book in the Crime Solver's series is as delightful as the first.
Previously 12 year old Karrine had taken her younger cousin under her wing and allowed her to help solve crimes over summer vacation. Now Jayden is back with her family and a new school year finds fewer crimes for Karrine to solve.
"Hits the mark completely!"
This book is aimed at young readers, and my 10-year-old son and I listened to it together. He intently followed the story, laughing out loud (as only a boy would) over the dialogue and the storyline. Even today, my son is still chuckling over some of the jokes. I'd say this audiobook completely hits the mark for the intended audience. The narrator really captures the youth of the characters, and we loved their voices, too
