“But when her new baby sister arrives, Sophie is the only one who can find out what she really wants.”                    [JPB WELLS,R]

“While visiting her aunt in New York City, Randi Rhodes and her fellow ninja detectives uncover an art heist, but no one will believe them, so they set out to catch the criminals in the act.

“Second book in a series full of humor, adventure, and heart from Academy Award–winning actress Octavia Spencer.”                            [J SPENCER,O]
