This was fun and something that I like a lot anyway -- kids investigate a mystery in Florida that involves crazy circus people, and also real estate scams and pulp fiction. It's a set-up that I always like, kids in the present day find the remnants of old clues that have been hidden for years so it's sort of like a double mystery, happening in the past and also now. This is one of those books, though, that has a mystery that is really disturbing if you look at it through adult eyes. For kids, I think, it's just moving the plot along as needed.

Grade: B+
Recommended: To people who like the weird parts of Florida, good for either boys and girls, I would say it's fine for average readers.
