The Maypop Kidnapping
Quinnie lives on a small Maine town with her father who runs the local diner and her mom who is the postal worker, real estate agent, and sheriff. She doesn't go to school and is taught by a neighbor. When her teacher doesn't show up on the first day of school, Quinnie fears that she has been kidnapped. Her mother and other townspeople are not initially concerned until a few days go by and a mysterious letter arrives. Quinnie and her best friend Ben and a new girl Ella try to investigate even though Quinnie's mom has told her to stay out of trouble.
This was a decent enough mystery. I had figured out who was probably responsible early on but there were some surprises and students would probably not figure it out as easily as I did. There was good interaction between the characters and some decent action and suspense.
