While I found this book to be completely unbelievable, I think this is a great book for tweens who like Nancy Drew. Four 7th grade girls who attend a prep school befriend an elderly woman who tells them about a mystery she wants them to solve for her. The woman's father, who was a famous archeologist, made a scavenger hunt for his granddaughter's birthday with a priceless ring as the prize. Unfortunately, he died before he could give her the first clue, which the elderly woman recently stumbled upon. The girls accept the challenge and solve the clues one by one. While the story wasn't my cup of tea, I think it would be a great book to have in a middle school library. The clues force the girls to use their skills in math, Latin, and literature. There are several great references to the works of Charles Dickens.
