**Librarian Side Note** Despite the boring-ish looking cover, this book really was a good mystery! Yet another 2014 Rebecca Caudill nominee, this was ranked in my top 7 (get...7, hunt for the seventh!), but maybe that's because I'm a sucker for a mystery! Bad jokes aside, stop in the library to check this book out today.
