At The Ski Jump
I liked this book a lot because the end of the chapters would pull you in to the next one. The Mystery At The Ski Jump by Carolyn Keene is a story that has kidnapping, running away from bad guys and snooping around. If you like books that have mysteries in them, you will like this book. The main character is Nancy Drew. She is smart and very sneaky. The book takes place at hotels, apartment buildings, ski jumps, and forests.
The big plot is that Mrs. Channing is selling fake stock to other people through the forest fur company. It all started when Mrs. Channing drove her car into Nancy's next door nabers front door. Then Mrs. Channing sold Nancy's baby sitter some stock, and that's when Nancy investigated the crime. When Nancy was in the woods she got kidnapped by two guys who said that she was too smart for her own good.
At the end of the book Nancy solves the mystery with her two friends and her aunt. The big problem was that their was someone using her name and identity. During that period of time that person had stolen from stores, and they were framing Nancy for all of it! I would recommend this book for 4-6 graders as an medium read book. There is also a whole series of Nancy Drew books so you can keep on reading.
I really enjoyed this novel. I thought there was a lot of suspense and that is what I think makes a great mystery novel.
Nancy is trying to locate the "Forest Fur Company", because she believes they are selling fake mink pelts and also stealing from mink shops.
She folows a trail of clues that lead her to Montreal.
There will she find the stolen mink?
And will she capture the crooks?
There are many more questions to be asked so I recommend reading this amazing mystery story.
