Now an 8th grader and the senior of Sage Brush Middle School, Alexandra Fry is looking forward to having a nice, calm, mystery-free year. But her hopes are dashed when she’s visited by none other than the famous boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun who has a very special request: to find the carved jade crocodile that once belonged to the mummy of his unborn child. With a fight brewing between Alexandra and her two best friends, Penelope and Jack, this case won’t be as easy as it seems.

New friends, a first crush, and a new threat from the spirit world, Alexandra must use everything she’s learned to uncover the mysteries in this case. Who is the bad guy this time? Who can she trust? And above all, what is the Shadow Man?

It’s up to Alexandra, her friends, and possible new allies to save the day in the thrilling new tale of Alexandra Fry, Private Eye.

EXCERPT

I gulped and shook my head, not wanting to speak for fear of someone hearing. “We’re minutes away. Now if you don’t mind going away, I really don’t need the distraction,” I hissed.

Jack stiffened next to me and he glanced around. “He’s here? Augustus?”

I rolled my eyes. “Yeah, complaining as usual.”

Augustus fixed his beady eyes on me, then vanished in a huff. As I stared at the empty space where he’d been, the air grew cold again, and for just the quickest second, I saw a dark thing in its place. It was hooded, like the horror movie grim reapers, but then it was gone. I felt my breath catch in my throat as the air around me constricted, just for a second. Then the air began to warm up again, and I told myself it was just my imagination, just trauma from the roof, adrenaline from the chase.

Jack squeezed my hand. It was time. The cops were cresting up over the hill and pointing in our direction. With a deep breath, we tore out of the brush and raced toward the truck where two tall, burly men with tattoos and black t-shirts were loading the truck. They obviously hadn’t expected to see us pop up because they just stood there staring, boxes in hand, and didn’t do anything as we dropped the document on the ramp of the moving truck and ran.

    I like that the book is for the pre-teen crowd – so hard to find good quality reading for this age group.
