Grades 3-6

Eleven-year-old Suzanna Snow's parents manage an exclusive resort in New Brunswick, and they are trying their best to groom her to continue the family tradition. Nothing ignites her passion, though, like a challenging investigation-- she believes she takes after her Uncle Bruce, a famous Bostonian detective. The summer of 1904 is shaping up to be all too predictable, when the young child of a wealthy couple staying at the hotel disappears. Search parties fail to locate Maddie, and Uncle Bruce is called in. Looking forward to sharing her observations and theories with her uncle, whom she has not seen in years, Suzanna is crushed to find that he has no use for the opinions of a "child," and that his investigative approach is more show than substance. With the help of Uncle Bruce's apprentice, Will, Suzanna is determined to track down young Maddie. Clues slowly emerge, but there are enough twists and turns along the way that readers will stay engaged. Zanna is a likeable protagonist, and her tenacious spirit rings true. This is a solid start to a new mystery series that Nancy Drew fans will enjoy.
