Summary: May contain spoilers! WHO'S OUT THERE?
Norah and Darcy's detective agency, Partners in Crime, is taking on a new and chilling case. The girls' classmate, Maya, is hearing strange, crackling voices coming over the baby monitor while she's babysitting late at night. Maya is worried someone might be in danger.
To help investigate, Norah and Darcy join her for a sleepover stakeout. In between eating snacks and watching TV, the girls are on high alert for anything suspicious. Soon, they stumble upon a mysterious secret they never could have imagined -- but Norah and Darcy clash over how to interpret the new clues.
Can the girls get past their differences to see their way to the truth? (Taken from Goodreads)Thoughts: I absolutely love Kim Harrington’s books and Sleepover Stakeout was just as awesome as all the other books. I started it and had to keep reading because I was really curious about a lot of what was happening. Later on I could figure out what was going on but it was still really fun to watch the characters figure out the mystery for themselves.
This is a middle grade novel so it’s a really fast read and one that I found really enjoyable too.
The ending was very interesting and left a place for the next book which I am looking forward to reading. I’m curious to see how the rift will be solved.
Overall, I love Kim Harrington’s work and Darcy and Norah just have such fun adventures that if you love mystery you should be checking out these books.
