If you like mysteries, then you'll love this book! This story is about Cam Jansen, the girl who has the mind of a camera, and her friend Eric who notice that Mr. Day's tennis trophy is missing. It is up to them to find out how it was stolen. Who could it be? You'll have to read the book to find out who stole the trophy.

I liked this book because it is easy to read and the book has many suspects in it. The clues were tricky but that made it more interesting to read. In the book, Cam reminds me of my mom. Cam has a great memory and so does my mom. Whenever someone in my family forgets where something is, my mom instantly knows and goes to get it. That is like Cam except Cam has a photographic memory and my mom does not. My favorite part of the book is when Cam got the last clue that helped her solve the mystery. That last clue also helped me to solve the mystery and that was exciting!

I recommend this book to 2nd and 3rd graders because it is easy to read. This book has many suspects and clues, but the clues are hard to find. I think you will like this mystery!
