Down the Rabbit Hole

Rating: 3 1/2 stars

Ingrid is a thirteen year old with no intention of trying to solve a mystery. She just decides to try to find her way to soccer practice by herself from the orthodontist's office and gets a little lost and ends up on the wrong side of town in the house of the woman they call Cracked-Up Katie. Unfortunately, Ingrid manages to leave her soccer cleats at Katie's house, and then Katie is found murdered. Ingrid doesn't go to the police--she just wants to sneak into that house and get her cleats back. But things seem to get more and more complicated. And when Ingrid gets chosen as Alice in the play of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, she should be the happiest kid on the block. Instead, she finds herself pulled deeper and deeper into the mystery, especially when it starts to affect the play and its director. What IS going on in Echo Falls? Although the story might be a little long and drags in a few parts, it is a very interesting mystery. Kids who like a complicated mystery plot will like Ingrid and her story.
