PRE-TEEN DELIGHTFULLY TWISTING

MIDDLE SCHOOL MYSTERIES

The BROOKE LYNN Mysteries series (Ages 9-12) views Brooke Lynn as a pre-teen filled with in-betweener angst and pivotal relationships. Albeit a smidge older, the STAR of award-winning children’s books, Brooke Lynn has teamed up with her pal Mikey, or Mike as he now likes to be called. As a middle-grader, Brooke Lynn has become curious about a new housing development being built in her sleepy town. Rumors spread about the new homeowners and sightings of celebrities. This is the perfect chance for her, and crime-busting pal Mike, to explore. Scoping out the development, the two kids stumble upon a mysterious item, a red-stained shoe hidden within a building. Why is it there? What is the stain? And, most importantly, who does it belong to, and are they OK? A new mystery awaits the two sleuths and The Case of the Hidden Shoe begins…

But it’s not just the housing development that is making Brooke Lynn curious. Mike has changed, her best friend Susie seems different, and her parents are getting strict! Yikes! Will she be able to get to the bottom of not only the hidden shoe but also the changes in her life?

“This cozy, exciting mystery, full of pre-teen angst, will have you guessing until the end.”
