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.

Readers of character-driven novels filled with humor will be thrilled by this smart and sweet series, start to finish."--VOYA, starred review

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!
