  • Romance - None
  • Violence - Some

Nine-year-old Bailey Chang and her 12-year-old friend, Alexis, visit Bailey’s uncle’s sheep farm near Peoria, Illinois. The two city girls spend a week shearing sheep, and discovering real farm life. But when Bailey’s uncle mentions the mysterious disappearance of a local millionaire, Marshall Gonzalez, the girls decide to solve the mystery. Using a combination of cell phone conference calls, texting and Internet connections through their laptop, the girls enlist the online help of four other Camp Club Girls. Together they gather a file of information on the missing man. Clues accumulate, including peculiar writing on living sheep and three strange men occupying a nearby ramshackle farmhouse. Spying ensues. But as the girls continue to gather evidence, they also edge closer and closer to danger.

This is a sweet girl story, with a dose of adventure and some clever thinking on the part of the two heroines, who pray regularly, quote scripture and strive for honesty. However, some of the prayers and narrative are adult sounding. The simple style is conducive to younger readers, but the omniscient point of view may also hinder the readers from connecting with the characters.
