This week I read The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer. Here are two short summaries of the book:
In a small town, Sarah Cole is stuck spending the summer at her Aunt and Uncle’s with her sister Lacey. She’s not happy with the situation until she befriends a girl named Jackie. The three girls stumble upon the ruthless murder of an alone neighborhood woman One of the officers investigating the crime believes the girls are responsible for her death. Knowing that this officer will frame them for the murder, the girls organize their own detective agency. They are now the Super Spies and start their own investigation. The Super Spies can’t understand why anyone would want to murder the “Cat Lady” until they start digging into her past and discover a horrible crime that happened thirty years ago. They uncover a connection between the two crimes and bring this information to the police, but are told that they could go to jail for trespassing and taking information from the crime scene. Not only are the girls upset by the criticism, but they also struggle with the fact that their urgent investigating could provide a legal loophole allowing the killer to go free. Frustrated by this turn of events, the Super Spies realize it’s up to them to snare the Cat Lady killer. Or get sent to jail trying. – Amazon
This book was about Sarah and her sister Lacey who are staying with their Uncle and Aunt. Sarah befriends Jackie, a neighbor hood fashion girl that believes all the rumors about the town. Sarah brings Lacey with her to play truth or dare with them. Jackie dares Sarah to go knock on the Cat Lady’s door. She agrees and then the trouble starts. Sarah finds the Cat Lady dead, and Lacy falls in the blood giving the police the right to arrest them. The murder is the police man in charge of investigating the murder and he sets his heart on making sure they go to jail for the crime they didn’t commit. Sarah, Jackie, and Lacy decide to form a detective squad, The Super Spies. To help them solve the mystery they bring in the sheriff’s son, a retired reporter, and the detective that has looked for the cat lady’s son since he was kidnapped. – Me
This book made me feel like I was in their shoes. Lisa really knows how to place the story into a preteen or teen mind. The book has a lot funny quirks like “Be there or be square, Beanpole.”–Be there or you’re a scaredy cat. Or “We go together like peanut butter and jelly.” – We get along really well. It taught me that we can do anything if we put our minds to it – and have a good reason. The Super Spies and the CatLady Killer gives you an image of being handcuffed and “arrested”. The book also reminds you that criminals could be anyone – even a cop.
This week I am reading Tell them you are going to read: The Girl who Remembered Horses by Linda Benson.
