The perfect series for kids who loved THE LEMONADE WAR series and are ready for more mysteries!

Edgar Award Nominee for Best Mystery!

"With wit, cunning, snappy dialogue and superior math skills, The Red Blazer Girls represent the best of girl-detectives while still feeling relatable and real. Nancy Drew would be right at home with this group." -- Huffington Post 's 15 Greatest Kid Detectives List

It all began with The Scream. 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 and life-long mystery fan, delivers a middle-grade caper that's perfect for middle-grade readers who have finished THE LEMONADE WAR series and are ready for more advanced mysteries!

I agree with my sister that there are some things, including swear words and Sophie's crush, that I don't like, but still it's a great book!

A book of mystery and adventure for girls. I had fun reading this book to my son (7) and daughter (11). My daughter would have loved to have been one of the girls in the story! I recommend this book for girls 11 and older.

Like its sequels, the detective and actual adventure part of the story is great. I'd say I loved the book, but then we come to the characters....twelve (or is it 11? I think it might be) year old girls who spend as much time mooing over some dude as they do solving mysteries. I don't care about little girl's 'love lives' and seriously believe that it detracts from the story. It tried to make the little detectives too grown up, which was annoying, because they're better at math than I am. Although if you've never understood the Pythagorean Theorem, read this book, because that's part of the exciting part of it. All in all, the puzzle-solving was good.

This is a very good new mystery series aimed at middle school kids. Four friends find themselves involved in a 20 year old mystery. Using math clues, they eventually solve the puzzle and there's a nice resolution. Looking forward to the next one in the series!

I don't think there is a single brain cell between the characters.

Three girls take on the mystery that was meant for a lady's daughter. Perfect for anyone who loves solving mysteries! I didn't want to put it down!!! ;D
