Young Reader Reaction: I thought this was a good book. I would recommend this book to students in fifth and sixth grades.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a great middle-school page turner. There's mystery to keep the pages turning and some creative problem solving, too.

Pros: Even at the end, you're not totally sure "who dunnit".

Cons: None…unless you are strongly averse to the mystical arts, even in fiction.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. The Fortune Tellers Club is a nice, value-priced set of mysteries for 4th to 6th grade readers.
