The Wig in the Window by: Kristen Kittscher

May 1, 2014 I met the author Kristen Kittscher
I cannot think of a better way to start a summer reading adventure than for you to spend time reading The Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher.  Best friends Sophie and Grace (who also happen to be spies) are once again out at midnight searching their neighborhood for anything suspicious.

Grace and Sophie have spy equipment and they try to use what they believe is spy lingo whenever they begin an investigation.  When they notice the lights on at Dr. Agford's house (their school counselor also known as Dr. Awkward) they go to investigate.  They overhear her telephone conversation and witness her holding a meat cleaver.  Before they know it, they see blood!  Is there something sinister going on at Dr. Awkward's?   The girls watch their counselor very carefully at school and at home.  They see her at school everyday and it isn't hard to watch her at home since they were caught spying and find themselves working in Dr. Awkward's yard.  Soon the FBI is involved.  Will the girls solve a crime or just get into more trouble?

This is a fast paced mystery that was fun to read.  I'm looking forward to more Grace and Sophie adventures.

Does the idea of being a spy interest you?  Can you find anything fun to investigate in your own neighborhood?  Just make sure you are not getting into any trouble!

Happy Daily Reading
