Return of the Gypsy Witch

“Allie, 12, longs to work on cases with her 28-year-old half sister, Kat, who runs their recently deceased dad's detective agency. When a mysterious man employs the private investigator to hold his briefcase for him, Allie is suspicious, and when he becomes a hit and run victim, she tries to convince her sibling that something is fishy…The rest of the case unfolds as the sisters pursue the clues, learn that the hit-and-run was no accident, and find themselves in peril. This fairly fast-paced mystery has trendy writing and lots of dialogue and will entertain readers not yet ready for Wendelin Van Draanen's Sammy Keyes novels.”
—School Library Journal

“It's a classic good-PI, bad PI comic duo, with Kat following procedure and Allie never missing a chance for comic mischief.”
—Booklist
