Editorial Reviews

Stevie is another resourceful character. She gets into scrapes, which are humorously written, then gets herself out again.

— The Chronicle-Herald

How Come the Best Clues are Always in the Garbage? Is a fast-paced read combining mystery à la Encyclopedia Brown and The Great Brain with contemporary issues.

— Quill & Quire
