From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6?For years, the Red Barn has served the best burgers in Vancouver, but when the business changes hands, the new owner decides to sell burgers in new containers. The gaudy, throw-away plastic packages cause a local environmental group to declare the business the worst "over-packager" in the city. Stevie's mother, employed by Garbage Busters, leads a campaign against the fast-food restaurant, only to have her apartment burglarized. Stevie, an avid mystery reader, is determined to find the thief. Through her chatty and humorous musings, readers meet a colorful assortment of believable characters. She moves logically from one episode to another, showing along the way that youngsters also know a lot about the environment. Local newspapers dub clever Stevie "Vancouver's answer to Nancy Drew" and "girl wonder." Young mystery fans will probably agree and welcome her fast-paced premier while awaiting more of what could be a popular series.?Gloria E. Nottingham, Richmond Public Library, VA
