"Shirley Link is a new girl detective series that my daughter is crazy about. This is an amazing series, my friends! Your kids will be hooked and you'll feel really good about it." - Emily Neuburger,

"This Veronica Mars for the tween-set is funny, smart, and full of preternatural wisdom. A thirteen year old gumshoe with mad crazy perception skills, Shirley Link sets out to solve the mystery of a missing school safe while at the same time juggling jealous best friends, boys, and homework. She does this with aplomb and the occasional, hilarious zinger." - Edward Hemingway, Author/Illustrator for Bad Apple and Bump in the Night

Shirley Link & The Hot Comic (4.5 Stars with 21 reviews on Amazon)
Someone is after a mint copy of The Avengers #1, worth over $100k. He's taunting the police with notes about when he'll pull off the heist.

Shirley Link & The Treasure Chest (4.8 Stars with 14 reviews)
Shirley proves how rewarding it is to get out of the house and explore. During a casual stroll through her town's sewers (don't ask) she stumbles on evidence that Shelburne Falls' underground is hiding something. But what?

Ready for some detective adventure? Snag the Shirley Link Boxed Set and dive in! The series is perfect for advanced elementary readers and middle school kids.
"There are early middle grade mysteries out there, but most of them have sketchy characters, and a lot of them plod along fairly predictable arcs. This series has an engaging heroine, a lot of attitude, and a much snappier overall feel." - PopBop, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer
