The premise: Sophie Young and her best friend Grace Yang are 7th grade sleuths who often sneak out on midnight spy missions. One time they even decide to spy on the strange middle school counselor, Charlotte Agford, who lives in their neighborhood. But this spy mission spins out of control and soon involves the police, the FBI and counseling sessions.
What I loved: Oh, the mystery, for sure. Just when you think you have it all figured out, of course, you don't. And that's what makes a mystery truly marvelous, right? Throw in some tension in Sophie and Grace's friendship, and this is a believable, fun, adventurous, rollicking middle grade debut you don't want to miss.
