Meet Isabel "Izzy" Spellman, private investigator. This twenty-eight-year-old may have a checkered past littered with romantic mis...takes, excessive drinking, and creative vandalism; she may be addicted to Get Smart reruns and prefer entering homes through windows rather than doors -- but the upshot is she s good at her job as a licensed private investigator with her family s firm, Spellman Investigations. Invading people s privacy comes naturally to Izzy. In fact, it comes naturally to all the Spellmans. If only they could leave their work at the office. To be a Spellman is to snoop on a Spellman; tail a Spellman; dig up dirt on, blackmail, and wiretap a Spellman. Part Nancy Drew, part Dirty Harry, Izzy walks an indistinguishable line between Spellman family member and Spellman employee. Duties include: completing assignments from the bosses, aka Mom and Dad (preferably without scrutiny); appeasing her chronically perfect lawyer brother (often under duress); setting an example for her fourteen-year-old sister, Rae (who s become addicted to "recreational surveillance"); and tracking down her uncle (who randomly disappears on benders dubbed "Lost Weekends"). But when Izzy s parents hire Rae to follow her (for the purpose of ascertaining the identity of Izzy s new boyfriend), Izzy snaps and decides that the only way she will ever be normal is if she gets out of the family business. But there s a hitch: she must take one last job before they ll let her go -- a fifteen-year-old, ice-cold missing person case. She accepts, only to experience a disappearance far closer to home, which becomes the most important case of her life. The Spellman Files is the first novel in a winning and hilarious new series featuring the Spellman family in all its lovable chaos. Read More

"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" Midwest Children s Book Review What Sammy should h...ave done was put the binoculars down and call 911. What she does instead is tighten up the focus on her right eye to get a better look. There s something very familiar about this thief. But when Sammy eventually spills her story to Officer Borsch, he doesn t believe her. He treats her like some snot-nosed little kid. Well, Sammy s not going to stand for that. She s a snot-nosed seventh grader now, and she knows what she saw. And somehow she s going to prove it. The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it s the drama in Sammy s personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father. Thirteen-year-old Sammy s penchant for speaking her mind gets her in trouble when she involves herself in the investigation of a robbery at the "seedy" hotel across the street from the seniors building where she is living with her grandmother.

And ended with . . . well, if we told you that, it wouldn t be a mystery! But in between The Scream and The Very Surprising Ending, three friends find themselves on a scavenger hunt set up for a girl they never met, in search of a legendary ring reputed to grant wishes. Are these sleuths in school uniforms modern-day equivalents of Nancy, Harriet, or Scooby? Not really, they re just three nice girls who decide to help out a weird lady, and end up hiding under tables, tackling word puzzles and geometry equations, and searching rather moldy storage rooms for ?the stuff that dreams are made of? (that s from an old detective movie). Oh, and there s A Boy, who complicates things. As boys often do. Intrigued? The Red Blazer Girls offers a fun, twisty adventure for those who love mystery, math (c mon, admit it!), and a modest measure of mayhem. Michael Beil, a New York City high school English teacher, makes his literary debut with this fun and brainy mystery. Read More
