Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—Best friends Alex and Yasmeen once again use their detective skills to unmask a criminal. This time, the book centers around Memorial Day, and the misdeed in question is the kidnapping of an Uncle Sam impersonator who is also Alex's baseball coach and co-owner of a lawn-care business that uses a possibly dangerous chemical. The plot depends mostly on humorous misunderstandings to draw readers into the story, but its most winning feature is Alex's narration, which always sums things up in a funny, kid-friendly way. This fast-paced read packs in quick treatments of deeper topics like environmental terrorism, the Vietnam War, and civil disobedience. An appealing choice for mystery fans.—Emily R. Brown, Providence Public Library, RI
