The Girl From Felony Bay by J.E. Thompson

The Girl from Felony BayAbbey's father is in a coma, accused of stealing valuable jewelry from an elderly client. She is certain her father is innocent, and she's forced to live with her mean uncle and aunt. All of her father's possessions were sold to pay back the victim, but Abbey's fortunes change when Bee moves into her old house. Bee is the daughter of the man now owns the property. The girls become fast friends, and Abbey shows Bee around the grounds. The girls discover some "No Trespassing" signs, and an adventure begins. Someone is digging on part of the land, and the girls are determined to find out why. Abbey is convinced that it has something to do with her father's accident and the jewelry theft. The question is, who can she trust?

I thought the plot was going to be about a sorrowful girl with no friends, but it turned into a decent mystery. I found the clues easy to follow, so it should be a good mystery for young readers. I liked how Abbey and Bee quickly bonded, and the way most of the characters helped each other. Abbey found an unlikely ally in the end. The author also worked in some Civil War facts too.
