9780142426142: Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking: A 14 Day Mystery (14-Day Mysteries)

“How could you say no to a book that's described as ‘for fans of The Westing Game and From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler?”—The Atlantic Wire

Moxie Fleece knows the rules and follows them--that is, until the day she opens her front door to a mysterious stranger. Suddenly Moxie is involved in Boston's biggest unsolved mystery: The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art heist. Moxie has two weeks to find the art, otherwise she and the people she loves will be in big-time danger.

Her tools? Her best friend, Ollie, a geocaching addict who loves to find stuff; her Alzheimer's suffering grandfather, Grumps, who knows lots more than he lets on; and a geometry proof that she sets up to sort out the clues.

It's a race against the clock through downtown Boston as Moxie and Ollie break every rule she's ever lived by to find the art and save her family.

About the Author:

Erin Dionne is the author of Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies, The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet, and Notes from an Accidental Band Geek. She broke her share of rules as a kid, and has always been fascinated with real-life mysteries. When not writing about the miseries, mysteries, and magic of middle school, or teaching Liberal Arts at a small college north of Boston, Erin catches Red Sox games and rocks out to local Boston bands. She lives with her husband and two children in Framingham, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-9-Thirteen-year-old Moxie was supposed to spend her last summer before high school exploring Boston with her friend Ollie. Her plans are ruined, though, when a mysterious stranger arrives at her door asking for her grandfather and threatening to harm her family if certain "items" are not returned to a dangerous criminal named Sully Cupcakes. Moxie soon learns that her grandfather, now dealing with Alzheimer's, was an accomplice to the 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum theft, hiding the stolen artwork in locations around the city. Sully Cupcakes has demanded that the artwork be returned to him within two weeks, and Moxie and Ollie race to discover the hiding places and to prevent Cupcakes and his accomplices from gaining access to the priceless masterpieces. Although many of Moxie's stunts are far-fetched (breaking undetected into historical landmarks, arguing face-to-face with dangerous criminals, etc.), most readers will forgive this as they get caught up in the breathless thrill-ride. With the recent announcement that the FBI knows the identities of the Gardner art thieves and is continuing its search for the missing works, this title is especially relevant.-Sarah Reid, Broome County Public Library, Binghamton, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.
