“Award-winning and bestselling author Dowell has created an intricate, laugh-out-loud story, in which readers will recognize themselves and their own classmates through the 20 distinct perspectives that emerge as confessions and pieces of the mysteries fall into place. Intrigue is high, lessons are learned about those who we think are different from us, and friendships shift as easily — as do the tides. Dowell’s characters are unquestionably realistic, and the story has twists and turns that will keep kids glued to the page. Read-aloud possibilities are endless for this fun mystery, which is a must for every sixth-grade classroom library.”
