Down the Rabbit Hole

Harper Collins, 31.03.2009 - 448 Seiten

"My all-time favorite. Astonishing." (Stephen King)

Down the Rabbit Hole is the first book in the Echo Falls mystery series by bestselling crime novelist Peter Abrahams. Perfect for middle school readers looking for a good mystery.

Welcome to Echo Falls, home of a thousand secrets. In Down the Rabbit Hole, eighth grader Ingrid Levin-Hill is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. And getting them back will mean getting tangled up in a murder investigation as complicated as the mysteries solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes.

With soccer practice, schoolwork, and the lead role in her town's production of Alice in Wonderland, Ingrid is swamped. But as things in Echo Falls keep getting curiouser and curiouser, Ingrid realizes she must solve the murder on her own—before it's too late.

"Deft use of literary allusions and ironic humor add further touches of class to a topnotch mystery," said School Library Journal. "Intriguing twists." Publishers Weekly agreed: "The fresh dialogue and believable small-town setting will tempt fans to visit Echo Falls again."

The next book in this Edgar Award-nominated series in Behind the Curtain, followed by Into the Dark.

While the solution to the mystery is a little obvious, Ingrid is a great spunky sleuth, and the lack of mysteries for tweens and teens makes me hope we will see a lot more of her. Vollständige Rezension lesen

RGG: Not too edgy, but lengthy enough to be a solid mystery. Ingrid has a real life with typical middle school issues. Reading Interest: 12-14. Vollständige Rezension lesen
