Snatched (The Bloodwater Mysteries, book one) by Pete Hautman and Mary Logue
Sleuth Putnam (Penguin Young Readers Group), 2006.
If you are a mystery/adventure person from a mature 8 and up, then you will love Snatched by Pete Hautman and Mary Logue.
Snatched is a third person narrative, following Roni and Brian and Alicia. There is a lot of action and adventure. There are a lot of twists and turns and suspect after suspect. Unless you’re really smart you won’t solve this mystery before the book’s end.
Roni Delicata, a persistent reporter for the school’s newspaper, finds herself in the principal’s office—again. Brian Bane, a science geek finds himself in the same place, at the same time. Brian and Roni would not usually partner up in something, let alone anything, but this was serious. The new kid in class, Alicia, had been snatched!
Paired up, Roni and Brian decide to take the case. Who snatched Alicia? Where was she? More and more questions and suspects are found while the two detectives realize that if they can’t come out of the hole without getting grounded by their moms they might as well dig deeper. What happens next? Well, I can’t tell you that. You’ll have to see on your own by reading Snatched.
