Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Holy mother load of childhood memories. These books, along side Cam Jansen, became my childhood. I was known as The Girl Who Loves Mystery Books at my school library. Yep. I was that cool. (Still am). I am only going to review the first in this series because you guys probably wouldn't want 26 "OMG I LOVED THESE BOOKS" reviews. And, "A" stands for Awesome so how fitting. Calling children everywhere. If you want to be like Stella Chen one day, start reading these books because you will not regret it.
