Best friends Lucas and Kari are touring the Minneapolis Institute of Arts when they spy a strange man copying one of the Rembrandt paintings, marked by his strong accent as he tells a boy to "Go aw-aay!" The girls almost forget about him, until, on a trip to London with Kari's journalist mother, they see an oddly similar man painting at the National Gallery. Is there a connection between the two galleries? And is Gallery Guy up to no good? Only these teen detectives can solve the mystery!

This is a book I would have loved as a kid. The fashion, the adventure, the travel--this one has to all. I don't know if it will go down in the history books as a classic, but it has all the ingredients to appeal to teenage girls of this era. A very enjoyable book.
