“A charming book about character and suspense that will be intriguing to many young mystery readers…”
—School Library Journal

Party: A Mystery

Written by Jamaica Kincaid
Illustrated by Ricardo Cortes
Published by Akashic Books

Three girls—Pam, Bess, and Sue—attend a party to celebrate the publication of the first of the Nancy Drew mystery books. There are many distractions at the fancy affair: flower arrangements, partygoers, refreshments, and lots and lots of marble. Suddenly, the oldest girl, Pam, sees what can only be described as something truly…bilious…not good! Bess sees it too. The youngest, Sue, does not, and as usual she has a hard time getting anyone to tell her anything.
