I read this book with my children (9,10). They really loved the hint of mystery and they clues that lead up to the solving of Barneys murderer. I loved that although there where plenty of people who hated her dog the ones that you least suspect turn out to be the killers.
This book was very well thought out with all the hints and clues falling together when one clue tips the scales in its favor. Perfect building up and releasing of all the cards. All the characters are very well developed and have their own personalities making it super easy to read and understand who is being spoken about or to. I really enjoyed this read with my children.
This is a good book, but not worth the present kindle price.
This MG book (grades 4-7) is set in a peculiar place named Centerlight Island. Half of the island is in the U.S. and half is in Canada. A squiggly line runs right through the downtown and across the island which means next door neighbors may actually be citizens of a different country! It also means the U.S. kids get to go to the island school and the Canadian kids have to ride a smelly ferry to their school everyday. This makes it so hard to be friends and ZeeBee really needs a friend. She so badly needs someone to believe her when she says her beloved monster of a dog, Barney, which was notorious for rampaging through the island and destroying anything in his path, was murdered. And no one believes her until Keenan moves to the island.
This book will have you laughing out loud as Zeebee and Keenan use every problem solving skill imaginable to figure out the answer to the mystery. And it’s a mystery that may have begun a hundred years ago when gangsters called Centerlight home. You will love the adventures the kids encounter along the way and you’ll cheer to see their growing friendship.
This is a great choice for those students looking for either an adventure or a mystery. There are plenty of chilling moments to satisfy those hungry for adventure and so many twists and turns to make a mystery lover reluctant to put it down.
Who could resist a tale of a 7th grader pulled from his mother's international lifestyle to the quiet of a small island situated between Michigan and Canada where he recuperates from tuberculosis and meets a girl of his own age who is obsessed by the island's history during the gangster age and by her conviction that her beloved dog Barney had been murdered by neighbors who hated him? And who could fail to be drawn in by poor little Barney Two, who only wants to be loved but is ignored because his human is still mourning his predecessor?
This was enough for a thoroughly entertaining read, but it was enhanced further by wonderful details. For example, the setting of an island split between Canada and the US was fun as it showed the essential "unity" of the citizens and how artificial boundaries could sometimes get in the way.
No matter what your age, if you are looking for a warmhearted read for a cold winter's day (or a cool read for the beach in summer!), this book should give you a good time.
