Great mystery that also covers some childhood issues of identity, friendship, social status, and even abuse. Full of well developed characters and twisting and turning plot! Not sure why people are taking stars off their reviews for a few curse words....that is just how Mo would really talk, also they are minor and in my opinion do not detract from the appeal of the book at all!
I really loved this so much that I didn't want the book to end! Mo is very cool. She is eleven and runs a cafe, knows martial arts and is a detective. While she searches for her mom, she starts to understand taht all she needs is love to have a family.
