The Vanishing Violin by Michael D. Beil

Publisher:  Alfred A Knopf
Pages:  330
Source:  Library
Genre:  Middle Grade Mystery

This was a great book.  I had the privilege of reading a great tween detective book that was full of puzzles. I found myself stopping to try them out.  This is something I believe most students will really enjoy.  I was well written and kept me turning pages.  This is the second book in the Blazer Girls series.  In this book the girls have already solved one mystery and have formed a detective agency.  Their next case involves finding out who has broken into their school and is "fixing" things.  Little did they know that solving that mystery would help them solve an even bigger case.  A case involving a valuable violin.  A violin that has been stolen.  This book will capture the attention of a lot of middle grade girls as it deals with "first boyfriends" and other changes that happen in the middle grade years.  Definitely one I recommend.
