The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls - by Elise Primavera
The real delight in reading this book is meeting the four girls, who are so different and so interesting. Each has a different talent, and they seem to hate each other, even though they live on the same block (on Gumm Street). The way in which they come together is very well-written, and the whole book just has a nice flow, with lots of unexpected twists and turns, plenty of mystery, and lots of adventure. Stay tuned for more books in this series, which are sure to become crowd favorites for many young readers, boys and girls alike.
