A SIBA "Okra Pick" for Best Southern-flavored Literature"[A] lively cast rich with heartfelt emotion . . . wit propels this fast-paced treasure-hunt tale into a pitch-perfect delight . . . if [readers] can get through the end without welling up, they're tougher than most--it's absolutely worth the wait."--Kirkus, starred review "Turnage's fine-tuned talent for storytelling is as evident as her understated, irrepressible humor and her creative ability to turn a phrase . . . The large, intergenerational cast of idiosyncratic characters enriches this first-person narrative at every turn. Amusing, dramatic, and tender."--Booklist, starred review "Every volume a standout, the Mo and Dale Mysteries series ends on as high a note--just as it began. Turnage delivers, once again, a fast-paced adventure with a cast of characters who are as real as they are quirky and laugh-out-loud dialog. . . . Readers of character-driven novels filled with humor will be thrilled by this smart and sweet series, start to finish."--VOYA, starred review

"With her mix of homespun humor, well-plotted mystery, and delicious characterization . . .

A must-read for fans of the first two volumes, and a rewarding adventure all on its own."--School Library Journal "Turnage's rich voice, abundance of heart, and wicked sense of humor handle the dynamics of the town with verve . . . [A] clever, sweet, laugh-out-loud funny series."--VOYA "Friendship prevails in this fine novel . . .

So sit back and enjoy a well-told yarn that is sure to please readers of all ages."--SLC --This text refers to the paperback edition.

These are for you
If you don’t like these I don’t know what you will like
I truly consider this series a mini-classic of sorts, something that I'd like to introduce my kids to along with Mary Poppins, Pippi, Alice, Nancy and others in the "the coolest girls in literature" gang. The key, I believe, is managing the whodunit part with coming-of-age part so well, and the brilliant sense of humor.
We get to go on the treasure hunt with Mo, Dale and Harm, celebrate dramatic Valentine's day at the cafe, and finally get a resolution to an “Upstream Mother of Mo” mystery. It's wonderfully awesome, dangerous, fun, exciting, touching and heart-warming altogether. I laughed, I cried, and I smiled satisfyingly with the turn of the last page.
I wouldn't be opposed (read: I'd be ecstatic) if Sheila Turnage came back to these characters in the future in one way or the other, but I'm still stoked about what's coming next, whatever it is. As far as “The Law of Finders Keepers” ... You SHOULD read the entire series. No, you MUST. Start with "Three Times Lucky" and thank me later.
Goodbye, Mo! I'll see you on the re-reads.
Kudos to Sheila Turnage for getting hat kids want and love...and can step up to!
