i hope that whoever made the choice to greenlight the babysitters club mystery series was fired. this book doesn't culminate in a couple of dudes in gorilla outfits snagging the bad guy, but it is ridiculous. it also got marked down for having mary anne as the narrator.

mary anne is reading the newspaper one morning, as 13-year-old girls are wont to do, & she reads an article about some new development proposed for miller's park. an evil rich dude named mr. fowler is behind the plans. in orde

A lazy, farfetched mystery involving a corrupt real estate developer (view spoiler). I have hardly anything to say about this one because it is so dumb.

From the title, I expected the BSC to be dealing with a witness who is actually unable to talk, like a preverbal kid or a kid with traumatic mutism or something. But no. It's a child who appears to know something about recent arson and vandalism incidents, but refuses to confide in the BSC members becau

I like mysteries so I read this book. Its a good
book and I will probly read it again. Its about
a man who wants to take over the town by by
building buildings over areas many people love.
I liked the suspense of the book.
This was kind of an odd BSC book, even for the mystery series. Still, it was fun to read.
