Synopsis:

Carlos Serrano has never solved a mystery in his life. But when Carlos’s mom gets sick with a nasty flu on the morning of an investigation that could save her failing detective agency, Carlos takes on the case. With the help of his best friend, Eliza, and her wild little brother, Frank, Carlos must uncover a mystery involving an eccentric local millionaire, anonymous death threats, and a buried treasure. 

But with tricky riddles, cagey suspects, hidden secrets, and dozens of impossible choices, they need your help! Can you help Carlos and his friends find the culprit and save Las Pistas Detective Agency? Or will it be case closed?

In this hilarious, interactive, and puzzle-filled adventure, YOU pick which suspects to interview, which questions to ask, and which clues to follow. You pick the path—you crack the case!


Review:

Got kids who are BORED of Summer reading? THIS book might be JUST the thing you need to spice up the end of Summer, and give them a fun book to talk about with friends, when they go back to school!

This is more than just a fiction book- it's critical thinking! Perfect to help keep Summer brain drain at bay! Not only do kids have to SOLVE puzzles along the way, to figure out what they need to do next, they have to act as Carlos and decide WHAT of the 2 actions available they will take next. That choice then decides what happens next in the book! So in theory, 2 kids will read the same book, but have 2 totally different experiences! HOW great is that? Especially if the book is being passed along family members or friends! It also allows for some great discussion afterwards, about why they made decisions they did, and were they good or bad ones! I love books that make kids think, and this is a fun little mystery! I wasn't surprised when Miss Grace declared this her FAVORITE book of the Summer-she loved acting like the detective and the interactivity of the book! 

So keep the 'I'm boreds' at bay a little longer with this great book!
