Why I picked it up: I recently learned of a petition to the publisher to have this series put back in print because there are few middle-grade books that deal with the Autism spectrum.

Agatha and Orville are best friends. They usually go to Agatha’s grandmother’s store after school, but on this particular day, she isn’t there. Agatha and Orville know this is highly unusual and they believe that Nana has been kidnapped. The two solved a mystery together bef
