    DESCRIPTION C. M. Surrisi
    In the coastal village of Maiden Rock, Maine, Quinnie Boyd's teacher has disappeared. Quinnie thinks it's a kidnapping case, but her mom, the town sheriff, just thinks the teacher has left town. Still, Quinnie's going to follow her instincts that something's wrong.

    Her investigation takes her through a damp and smelly marsh, a lobster pound, and more of Maine's messiest places. She even gets help from her glamorous new neighbor, Mariella. As the girls hunt for clues around Maiden Rock, they encounter a cast of unlikely characters. And if Quinnie's hunch is right, the search may lead them right into danger . . .

    This hilarious and page-turning debut is the perfect whodunit story for middle school sleuths.

    Cindy Norris of Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe
    "C. M. Surrisi's Quinnie Boyd is one of the cleverest most memorable young teen protagonists I've met in quite a while! Set in a small coastal village in Maine, much of the humor in this fast-paced read revolves around the quirky villagers, particularly the two elderly nuns who drive like NASCAR racers. Surrisi's debut novel is an engaging cozy mystery, with unpredictable twists and turns and an ending you'll applaud!" —Cindy Norris, Author Event Coordinator, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe
    VOYA
    "[A] sweet mystery that manages to have suspense, bad guys, and danger but avoids gore and being too scary. . . . This book is recommended for upper elementary mystery collections."—VOYA
