This story has a decent plot that is fun to follow, but the characterizations could use some work. For instance, race is only mentioned when introducing African American characters, but no one else. Also, Devlin always seems to be a bit more mature in her responses than is natural (for kid or adult), and it makes her feel a bit stock.

Devlin Quick has moxy! I thought that from the first chapter and was happy to find that her grandmother agreed with my assessment. It was great fun to read about a mystery that originated in the NYC Public Library and is solved by pre-teen sleuths. Books set in NYC have so many landmarks and so much history to draw upon.

The plot reminded me of the old Nancy Drew mysteries. There is the friend who brings a mystery to Devlin's attention, her professional parent with helpful connections, her partners in sleuthing and her single-minded pursuit of the answer to the puzzle -- all elements that evoke the nostalgic memory of Nancy Drew's many adventures.

With the mystery of who planted the bomb in Paris that killed Devlin's father before she was born on her to do list, we know there is much for Devlin to do as she grows up.

A great new mystery series by author of the Alexandra Cooper series for adults.
A testament to perseverance when you believe you are right and when grown-ups say you are wrong. It doesn't hurt that the theft is at the New York Public Library!
