Linda Johns lives in Seattle,Washington.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
