The book is aimed at middle school children and it might very well be fine for that age. It's simple, easy to read and the storyline no doubt what children could identify with, concerns of the age. I wasn't sure, however, of the time period, as it spoke of (telephone) receivers being placed back in the cradle. The mothers harken back to 50s sitcoms with aprons, fresh baked cookies, and lots of dinners.

I picked this one up because I noticed that it said one of the characters had autism. I was not super happy with it because in my opinion, the author could have wrote the character way better. yes, everyone on the spectrum is different, but this character just seemed to only be there so that the ''friends'' could solve the mystery. Also, the writing seemed really clunky in parts, so maybe that could have been fixed a little more.

I wish I was still teaching fourth and fifth grade - I would like to read this book with students. There are embedded themes that would be ideal for discussion with 10-11 year olds plus it has adventure and a ghost. What more can you ask for? The language is descriptive but accessible for a struggling reader as well. I look forward to reading more of Bobby's adventures!
