Editorial Reviews


"There's a new Nancy Drew in town ..." -- KOMO TV, Seattle

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. Johns has concocted a wonderful character in 12-year-old Hannah West, who wanders the street, closely observing her surroundings. Adopted from China as an infant, Hannah and her adoptive mother, an artist, earn their way by house-sitting, with Hannah making extra money as a dog walker and errand runner. While taking care of an apartment in Seattle's upscale Belltown Towers, Hannah and her mother stumble upon an art theft. The heist turns into a series of thefts from local art galleries, which Hannah, with her knowledge of the city and keen observation skills, is able to solve. With a great backstory and an engaging heroine, this enjoyable mystery is a strong addition to the Sleuth imprint. Connie Fletcher

(Review for Hannah West in the Belltown Towers, included in this edition)

From Booklist:
Gr. 5-8. This follow-up to Hannah West in the Belltown Towers (2006) finds the 12-year-old Chinese adoptee and her mom house-sitting a houseboat and a dog. It seems idyllic, with beautiful water and cute houseboats, and there's the excitement of a television series filming in the community, which brings some inconveniences but also a friend for Hannah. Mysterious goings-on soon pique Hannah's interest: people in black raingear scurry around with big buckets, dead fish in the water, folks on yachts dump materials at odd hours. Hannah investigates, ultimately discovering villains whose personal agendas have potentially harmful environmental impact. Hannah is inquisitive, lively, and outspoken, and her often-droll first-person narrative incorporates plenty of local flavor, as well as a growing awareness of marine conservation issues. Steer satisfied readers to Carl Hiaasen's children's books. Shelle Rosenfeld

About the Author

Linda Johns is a writer, reader, and librarian. The order changes depending on the day. She works at the Seattle Public Library’s downtown Central Library, a gorgeous eleven-story building with a million books inside. She grew up in Cheney, Washington, and graduated from Washington State University with a degree in journalism. She has a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of Washington. Her first job, at age fifteen, involved a lot of stapling. Subsequent jobs (after college) included reporter, editor, and bookseller. Linda lives in Seattle with her husband, son, and a basset hound named Owen Henderson.

Nancy Pearl is a librarian and lifelong reader. She regularly comments on books on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. Her books include 2003’s Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason; 2005’s More Book Lust: 1,000 New Reading Recommendations for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason; 2007’s Book Crush: For Kids and Teens; Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Interest; and 2010’s Book Lust To Go: Recommended Reading for Travelers, Vagabonds, and Dreamers. Among her many awards and honors are the 2011 Librarian of the Year Award from Library Journal, the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association, the 2010 Margaret E. Monroe Award from the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association, and the 2004 Women’s National Book Association Award.
