Dear Readers,
I hope you buy this book because you will really love this one! It has action, amazement and it is very interesting. The main characters are Cam Jansen, Eric Shelton, and Howie (Eric's little brother). It was a spring vacation day and it started at the mall when some thieves steal diamonds. Cam is kidnapped and there is so much more excitement! I hope you read it over and over again because it is so mysterious.

I liked the book a lot! Only you can't put it down! I thought it was very exciting and surprising. The best part was when Cam was in the house. I won't say any more because you should read it yourself, because you will like it too.

I first met Cam Jansen a few years back when my son read a couple aloud to me as his reader, so I picked up a few more for him. I was impressed with the quality of the mystery for this level of reading. Starting here with the first book in the series, I'm again impressed with this mystery series for first chapter book readers. Cam (aka Jennifer) and Eric are two interesting and curious children with a lot of smarts. Cam's photographic memory is an unusual device and makes for a fun element to these mysteries. The children do some daring things but ultimately are clever and responsible enough not to go too far. They may wait before calling the police but call the police they always do in the end. This mystery is quite clever and will have would-be sleuths scratching their heads trying to figure out who the robber is and how he managed to escape. This is the type of book I would have read as a child. Well-done sketches accompany the text making for a pleasant reading experience.

You have to love Cam Jansen. When you're a kid, you read all of these stories about magic powers, mystery, and adventure. But everyone tells you magic can't exist. Cam Jansen manages to solve every case without the use of magic... she's a real girl. That's what makes her special and what makes you want to red more and more. Cam Jansen is a real kid superhero, and the thought that a person like her could actually exist... makes her the best kid detective ever! Our family loves Cam Jansen!

Cute book. Great reading for a 3rd/4th grader. Short for a chapter book and would make for a great first chapter book though it does have a robber pointing a gun at a store owner so some discression might be advised if your child is an excelled reader but not ready for that content as my child was in 1/2nd grade.

I had to read this for school summer reading. I wrote a book report on it. I had never read a Cam Jansen book before, but I like mysteries. I would read another Cam Jansen book. Andrew 8 years old

In a mall Cam and Eric were playing a memory game. Suddenly, a robber stole jewels from a jewelry store.
If you want to know who stole it, you can read the book. I like this story because I like mysteries and reading Cam Jansen. If somebody stole something in real life, you can solve the mystery like Cam Jansen. Please read this book.
