The actual mystery part didn't do much for me, but I loved reading about reform dress.

I enjoyed reading this book very much, I love all the American Girl stories. It's a great book for ages 8 and up.

When Emma's mothter takes a position at a newspaper office, several threatening notes and mysterious whistles proves that some body doesn't want them to stay.

I began writing stories when I was maybe 10 or 11. At 15 I wrote my first novel; I sold my first novel to a publisher 20 years later! Writing...more
