From the Publisher
Nancy Clancy is on the case!
Nancy Clancy has everything she needs to be a super sleuth (that''s a fancy word for detective): She has a glamorous magnifying glass complete with rhinestones, a totally professional pink trench coat, and a sleuthing partner with awesome code-breaking skills-her best friend, Bree. But when crime strikes right in the middle of her classroom, will Nancy have what it takes to crack the case?
