My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this sweet faith based mystery written in the first person from the perspective of the main character, Maggie. This is a wonderful clean read for ages 9-12 that kept me wondering, “I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
Without giving away more than the title indicates, Maggie uncovers some secrets in her new hometown while also dealing with struggles and issues kids her age face – 6th and early 7th grade.
The secrets and issues continually point her to her need for God and His help, guidance, intervention, and learning to place one’s life into His capable hands.
The story gently, and non-overpreachingly (to make up a word) weaves scripture and faith throughout. The author also cleverly weaves the perfect amount of real life history into the story and makes it work wonderfully with the plot and characters.
I recommend this read and have done so already. I look forward to future books by this author.
