From the book jacket:
Ingrid is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. Getting them back means getting involved in a murder investigation rivaling those solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes, and Ingrid has enough on her plate with club soccer, school, and the plum role of Alice in the Echo Falls production of
Alice in Wonderland
. But much as in Alice's adventures down the rabbit hole, things in Ingrid's small town keep getting curiouser and curiouser.... Echo Falls has turned into a nightmare, and Ingrid is determined to wake up. Edgar Awardnominated novelist Peter Abrahams builds suspense as a smart young girl finds that her small town isn't nearly as safe as it seems.
This is a great
choice for children and young teens who enjoy good mysteries, and especially by
those who are sufficiently well-read to pick...
