        I really liked this book. I read it in book club, in school. I recommend this book to whoever likes chapter books. This book is about a girl named Claudia, running away with her little brother, Jamie because of injustice in her family. Soon they bump into a mystery Claudia really wants to solve. As they look for answers they go through obstacles that might blow their cover in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they are staying away from home. Soon, they find themselves with a person who has the answers to their mystery.

          I read this book in book club with my teacher and a few of my classmates. It was really interesting. It was about a girl named Claudia who wanted to run away because of injustice in her family. But she went with her little brother Jamie because he had a lot of money and he needed someone to accompany her. Soon they try to solve a mystery as they meet a new person who has the answers.

            I got this book when I got news in 3rd grade that I was leaving my school to go to another one. It was a gift from my teacher...

              E. L. Konigsburg is one of my favorite authors. This story was about one girl named Claudia, and one boy named Jamie. They decide to run away from their house because they think their parents were too bossy to them. They decide to run away to the Metropolitan Museum, which was kind of weird in my personal way. It was amazing how they didn't get noticed in the beginning, but at the end, they get to a newspaper and got caught from their parent's notice to to the FBI. I love this book. Out of 100, I would give this book 100.

                I agree. They really must be bad parents to not notice they were gone until then.
