Description-

  • Fifteen-year-old Charlie stays home from school so he can help his older brother, Tom, who is in a hip-to-toe cast after breaking his leg in a football game. When not waiting on his brother hand and foot, Charlie investigates a series of break-ins that have the whole neighborhood on edge. Things really hit home when Charlie nearly catches the thief and then foils an attempted break-in at his own house. As he continues to piece together the clues, Charlie realizes that the easiest way for the culprit to avoid suspicion is to hide in plain sight.

    June 15, 2019
    Charlie Swift wants to be a detective--if only he can find the courage. Charlie is staying home to take care of his brother while he recovers from a ghastly football injury. With their mother working hard to support the family and their uncle living with them but not pulling his weight, Charlie decides to be his brother's caretaker. He tells his mom that their school is OK with him missing a week of class (he's lying), and his mother never questions it because she has more pressing issues on her mind--like her job, family, and a rash of break-ins in the area. Quite frankly, Charlie would rather be home because while he is doing well in school, he has absolutely no friends. Every day he's visited by the nosy mail carrier excitedly updating him on the burglaries, and finally Charlie decides to investigate and see if he can catch the criminal. However, his investigations lead him to question whom he can trust. Hughes (The Cold Little Voice, 2019, etc.) takes readers on a thrill ride as Charlie starts investigating around the neighborhood. She handles the exposure of family secrets in a way that will resonate with many readers and ratchets up the tension when describing the fear involved in being an amateur detective. All characters are assumed white. An entertaining roller-coaster ride of emotions for reluctant readers. (Mystery. 12-18)
