Mr. Zackheim introduces all of the characters in believable fashion and this detective story in a school setting moves along at a good pace. There’s humor and tongue in cheek. Kids will recognize their teachers, friends, and principals in the story. There are several more Shirley Link detective cases for kids to enjoy.
Recommended for kids ages 8 to 11.
Along with her endearing personality, Shirley has an incredible eye for detail that is her strongest weapon. After all, it's the detail that always catches the crooks. Reading Shirley was easy. I felt the style flowed and the mystery was revealed at a good pace.
In a Nutshell | Shirley Link is a Miss Marple of the future, but perhaps not so old and stodgy. Although she has such great skills, I like that she remains grounded and kind.
There were a few editorial snags in this book, though, which were distracting, especially for its short length.
Shirley and her friends were likeable, and she reminds me of a younger Nancy Drew, which is the girl detective I grew up with. Over all, enjoyed! (I also now feel really old after reading this.)
Found this as a one click roulette read and I am glad I read this one!
My only negative critique would be that she seems a little TOO wise beyond her years. Maybe it would be cool if she had more childlike moments, more flights of fancy? She's surely a braniac, yes. But she could still stand to think like a kid. At least in some moments.
There is absolutely nothing I did not like about this book. It is a really short book and would do wonders with kids. The concept is captivating and story is crisp without any scope of mind wandering. I would love to read more of Shirley and her friends. They are definitely here to stay.
