In an adventerous story, Lexi and her brother Kevin find themselves in the middle of investigating a jewel theft instead of spending their time in day camp. With a very annoying, yet very smart journalist-to-be, they set off to follow up on the clues they found. Fueled with intrigue and humor, Bonk has written a story that sucked me in and will appeal to even the most reluctant reader.

I really liked this book! It was a really cute story, and a great middlegrade adventure without adding all sorts of paranormal elements. Lexi was a nice character to follow around and I especially liked Kevin's smartass-ery. Kim was obnoxious, yet very refreshing while following Lexi's thoughts.

The story was a bit predictable, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. I was thoroughly entertained while I flipped the pages to see what would happen next. I've never been to New York, but I would love to be able to check out the Whispering Corner one day!

I really liked reading this one and will be checking out more of Bonk's work in the future, which will hopefully be just as good as this book!
