Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Gabby Woods loves a mystery, but is breaking into an abandoned lake house going too far to uncover the truth? Gabby Woods is looking forward to another summer vacation at her family's lake house, even though she would rather bury herself in a mystery novel than make new friends. But soon Gabby meets Paige, a snarky kid from Chicago, and they get caught up in a local mystery: the sudden disappearance of a glamorous couple and the extravagant lake house they left behind. To gather clues about the missing couple, Paige coaxes Gabby into trespassing. Though Gabby knows it's wrong, each sneaky visit to the abandoned lake house uncovers new mysteries. With suspicions mounting about foul play, Gabby must decide what she's willing to risk to uncover the truth, or if solving this mystery -- and keeping her friendship with Paige -- are more trouble than they're worth.

    Gabby plans to spend summer vacation at her family's lake house reading mysteries, but she gets more than she bargained for when presented with a real-life unsolved mystery. A nearby gated mansion has remained empty for years—one night the site of a party, owners gone the next morning—and Gabby decides to write a story about the husband murdering his wife. Gabby's adventurous and tough new neighbor, Paige, talks her into seeking out real clues by breaking into the mansion, but when Paige, suspecting an elderly neighbor, tries to get Gabby to break into his home, the girls' tempestuous friendship is put to the test. In her traditional publishing debut, Bard tackles the difficulties of making new friends and the importance of not jumping to conclusions through an imaginative mini mystery story written by Gabby. Bard's illustrations are bright and cheerful, reminiscent of Raina Telgemeier's, and will leave readers feeling as if they are exploring the lake house's environs alongside the characters. A solid mystery for middle-grade comics collections. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
