A new case at school and suddenly a very personal case at home have fifteen-year old Iris Anderson very busy. Her father is a detective and she is following in his footsteps...or footstep. After losing a leg at Pearl Harbor, he came back home–-but before he could get back, Iris’s mother committed suicide. So when Iris uncovers evidence that could question everything she knows about her mother, she has to put her detective skills to the test.
The Girl is Trouble is definitely a book for middle school girls. Girls that love to read mystery novels that make you think would really enjoy this book. Readers that like to solve problems like a sleuth will also like to read about Iris’s adventures.
The magnificent sequel to The Girl is Murder, The Girl is Trouble is just as good, if not better. I usually don’t enjoy reading mystery novels, but this story pulled me in and didn’t let go–-not even after the last page. The characters could jump off the page, the plot is fascinating, and the pace is perfect. The Girl is Trouble is as flawless as can be.
