Alibi Vernon is a sweet young girl who seemingly has a knack for getting into trouble. Now, if only her parents would realize that she is not operating under her own power when she does the things that cause them to question her.

Won this in a Goodreads giveaway. It was a quick read, and I would place it among the Beverly Clearys of young adult fiction. I could easily see having read something of the sort when I was in grade school, and I would've chewed through a series of them.

My only criticism lies with the oft-errant formatting, the larger-than-necessary font, and the occasional typos that cause stumbles in the reading pattern. Wish it had gone through another proof-reader or two.

Wonderful quick read. A young girl who speaks with ghosts of her grandfather and prank playing cousin and his crow. Allie is slowly led into a mystery that she solves with the ghosts help. the foreshadowing is really well done. The ghosts play a part in solving the mystery along with Alie our young sleuth. Just wonderfully done.My 14 year old son and 10 year old sister are going to get this book for xmas as I know they will love it.
