Four seventh-grade friends try to find the person responsible for pranks apparently related to a mysterious curse.
I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Decent mystery for the preteen crowd, a little older than Bobbsey Twins or Boxcar Children, with logical story progression even if the main characters feature the obligatory racial/cultural mix. (There's nothing wrong with having characters from different racial and cultural backgrounds, of course, I just got the feeling Hunt used the cookie-cutter approach to make sure her characters wouldn't offend anyone.) Unfortunately, Hunt's word use is unacceptably sloppy. Of a recent immigrant, she wrote, "Because Kim's for Korea." I have no clue what she was trying for when she wrote "Corrin made the mistake of calling Meredith the 'n-word' in guy." Do schools these days have a place called guy? "Laura wriggled her fingers." I'm pretty sure she meant wiggled but it's still an odd way to catch some one's attention. "You heart that Scott thought Kim was cute." With the epidemic of sloppy English among young people, Hunt should have taken whatever extra steps were needed to ensure her book would set a good example. Kindle formatting was acceptable.
