"Missing Pieces" by Jerry B. Jenkins & Chris Fabry is the first book I've read from their young readers collection. It was a very quick read. Twins (brother & sister) have a detective bone in their body and love to solve mysteries. This particular story had 2 mysteries going on. Bryce had one to solve and Ashley was working on one. Bryce is working on figuring out who's been smashing mailboxes. He thinks he has it all figured out until he finds other evidence. Ashley, in the meantime, is trying to help the lunch lady find her missing daughter who was supposedly killed in an apartment fire. Mrs. Garcia never believed her baby was killed because there was never any evidence of a body found. It was interesting and perfect for any reader who is in to reading larger chapter books.
My granddaughter, age 12, has read the first four of this series, and has loved each one. I bought number one to see if she liked this type of book. She enjoyed it so much that she asked for more. I ordered numbers 2, 3, and 4 and she read them all in the three days after they arrived in the email. She loves the characters and the exciting stories. the Christian imput is very good; not overwhelming, but just right.
