I was engrossed. I love that these kids were little detectives trying to find their missing fundraiser money. I only wish I could have had that much fun and excitement as a kid. They thought their secret clubhouse and group were on the down low but the parents already knew, and watching the kids and the parents all work together to make sure Janet was safe is nice. Working together they have to stop the strange men who come to blackmail Janet to get her mom to sell black market medicines. I really enjoyed this story and read it all in one sitting, it was exciting, very well detailed and well written. I look forward to more from this author.
