I enjoyed reading this book because it was strange, funny, and a mystery. It was strange because they buried dead fish for a science project. It was funny when Casey was swinging on a pole in Walt?s garage. The book was a mystery because when Casey went to look for the dead fish they were gone. My favorite part was when Casey snuck into her school because it was exciting. She left an envelope there that had a letter in it from her pen pal which she didn?t want anyone to see. I enjoyed the illustrations of the characters because they looked how the author described them. I also liked them because they were in black and white. Last, I liked the illustrations because they looked very real.
I recommend this book to people who like books that are kind of sneaky like a mystery. I also recommend this book to people who like to read books by Patricia Reilly Giff. Last, I recommend this book to people who have an older sibling.
