Do you like solving mysteries? Cam, her best friend Eric, and Camís Mom go to a museum. They are visiting lots of museums in the city. They see a big scary snake loose by the library and videotape it. Camís mother gets her purse with the video camera of the big scary snake on it stolen. Cam uses her amazing memory to try to find it. When she thought that she solved the mystery and got it right, man was she wrong. Will Cam be able to solve this mystery and get the video camera back? You have to read it to find out.
I liked this book because it is very adventurous. In the beginning that scary snake gets loose and almost kills a man. It also had a lot of funny parts that had me laughing like when the scary snake got loose and the man screamed. I thought it was funny that a man screamed like that. It is not hard to read.
I recommend this book to ages 7-8 and like adventures because they will have an easy time reading it and it has an adventure in it. Run and go out and get this book now.
