Trouble at Betts' Pets - by Kelly Easton

Young Aaron has a lot of problems: His parents are having trouble keeping their pet shop open because of money problems, animals are going missing, and his teacher just assigned him to be partners with the most know-it-all girl in his class.  How could things get worse?  Oh yeah, he thinks the upstairs of his new home may be haunted. 

This isn't the most wonderful book - in fact, it felt like the story wasn't that well thought-out - but it is a good story for animal lovers and those who enjoy hanging out in pet stores.  There are really likeable characters, and it's funny to watch Aaron and his new prissy partner figure out how to get along.  Let's hope this author keeps writing, and improves her style along the way.
