My opinion is that this is one of the best books I ever read. My favorite part is when they try to get the sack from the lake. I think you should read the series. I think Jeff is the smartest, because he sketches everything and tries to find clues through his drawing. The part in the story when they went into the cold lake reminded me of when I jumped into a cold lake.
I would recommend this book to kids that like to read mysteries. I think kids will be interested in reading the entire Cabin Creek series. 2nd graders through 4th graders should read this book because it is not too easy and not too hard and it has an 8 page sneak peak of the next book. There are 158 pages in all.
