“Shirley Link is a new girl detective series that my daughter is crazy about. This is an amazing series, my friends! Your kids will be hooked and you’ll feel really good about it.”
Shirley Link is a 14-year old private eye, but she doesn’t want anyone to know. Whenever she uses her powers of observation she gets into trouble.
She wrote a school paper about a tough case she’d solved over summer vacation.
“It’s not a creative writing assignment, Shirley,” the teacher scolded. “You were supposed to write about what actually happened.”
“I did,” she said, louder than she meant to. But he gave her a D anyway.
So when the school principal needs Shirley’s help to catch a thief she tries to do it quietly. Can she track down a criminal who’s clever enough to steal $35,000 and the one-ton safe it was kept in? Can she do it without the whole world finding out about her detective skills?
Hint: the answer to one of those questions is, no.
A great read for kids (and their adults).
