A gently mystery that builds up to the end so much so that I couldn' put it down. I choose this book because I was weeding the library and although this book had not been checked out in awhile, the story caught my attention. I wasn't diappointed and it will be staying on the shelf. i'll be including it in my next booktalks.

Another "Electronic Bookshelf" quiz book. This book is about a girl whose mother keeps making them move from place to place. As the story progresses, the girl finds out why. That's really all I remember about reading this book.

I don't remember a lot about this book but I remember that I liked it. I read it in Junior High.
