The Red Blazer Girls: The Vanishing Violin
See, we're mostly just good friends who go to school together, eat lots of ice cream, and - oh, yeah! - we're forming a band. And then there are scooter rides with a certain boy . . . but I probably shouldn't mention that. But I can tell you what else we're working on: tracking down the someone who's been breaking into our school (and cleaning it!), cracking a slew of codes and clues that are supposed to lead us to a valuable violin (probably stolen!), and finding yet another missing violin (definitely stolen!).
So we're busy, busy, busy - and there's also the matter of the boy on the scooter. But that's just my "case." And I haven't nearly enough clues to figure that one out. Yet.
When there are mysteries to be solved, the Red Blazer Girls are on the case! The discovery of the Ring of Rocamadour has secured the girls' reputation as Upper East Side super-sleuths, bringing many sundry job requests (no mystery too small, right?) and some unwanted attention from crooks. This time the girls must follow a trail of cryptic clues, involving everything from logic to literature, to trace a rare violin gone missing. But nothing is as it appears, and just as a solution seems imminent, the girls find themselves scrambling to save the man who was once their prime suspect. Bowstrings and betrayal, crushes and codes abound in this suspenseful companion to the Red Blazer Girls' 2009 debut. Recent clues indicate that there'll be more mystery and mayhem to come!
