"A not-to-be-missed novel for middle graders looking for a satisfying mystery with a daring female heroine."&nbsp -School Library Journal

It's 1920s Chicago-the guns-and-gangster era of Al Capone-and it's unusual for a girl to be selling the Tribune on the street corner. But ten-year-old Isabel Feeney is unusual . . . unusually obsessed with being a news reporter. She can't believe her luck when she stumbles into a real-life murder scene and her hero, the famous journalist Maude Collier. The story of how Isabel fights to defend the honor of her accused friend and latches on to the murder case makes for a winning&nbspmiddle grade mystery.
Beth Fantaskey is the author of Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, Jessica Rules the Dark Side, Jekel Loves Hyde, and Buzz Kill . She lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and daughters.

Editorial Reviews

Fantaskey does an excellent job of conveying the flavor of the time period, drawing attention to the public's fascination with murderers, bootleggers, and gangsters? Isabel's innocence and intelligence combine to form a complex character full of moxie." - Booklist STARRED Review "A not-to-be-missed novel for middle graders looking for a satisfying mystery with a daring female heroine." -School Library Journal "Fast-moving, short chapters are narrated by the sassy Isabel, whose speech ("Jeez, what kind of bee was in his bonnet?") captures the flavor of the era." -Kirkus "
