Cute, Clean, Mystery for Young Teens

Pros:

-the narrator was excellent
-I found the whole book charming
-I would've LOVED this series when I was younger. It was very well written, with a 10, 14, and 16 year olds as the heroes.
-I liked that it was clean (no sex, swearing, etc.) while at the same time you knew life was tough back then and there is a homeless teen hiding from a gang.

I am 28 and really enjoyed this. I think this would be a fun one to read as a family, or as an early teen.

Fantastic

This is simply fantastic. A great book as a base, paired with an excellent performance by Jessica Preddy, makes this audiobook engaging and entertaining. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a good mystery.
