My Review: Tyler, Mike, Maddie, and Bree use their sleuthing skills to find Baxter, Nic's dog. Great fun characters. After finding Baxter, Nic has to confess to her parents about something. Her friends are their to support her. The kids learn a lesson. Could the kids use their sleuthing skills to solve other mysteries? They start a club to do just that. Enjoyed reading this entertaining mystery to see how these kids followed the clues. Thanks, Emlyn, for an entertaining read. I received this book free for an honest review.
About the Author: Emlyn Chand
From an early age, Emlyn Chand has counted books among her best friends. She loves to hear and tell stories and emerged from the womb with a fountain pen grasped firmly in her left hand (true story). Her affinity for the written word extends to absolutely every area of her life: she has published fiction across multiple genres, oversees and contributes as both an editor and an author to the Novel Publicity Guides for Writing & Marketing Fiction series, and loves the written word so much, she even married author Falcon Storm! Don’t forget that she is the founder and president of Novel Publicity too.
The book that changed Emlyn’s life is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crocket Johnson. It opened her eyes to the world that could exist if only she was willing to create it—a lesson she has never forgotten. Maybe that’s why she loves writing her Bird Brain Book series for children so much! Emlyn’s first novel, Farsighted, won the prestigious Writer’s Digest Self-Published Novel of the Year award in 2012 for the YA category. She now writes most of her fiction under her real name, Melissa Storm.
