This book is about a girl who has to move because her mom got a job. When she gets to the place where the job is she keeps hearing someone whistle her fatherís favorite tune. Who could it be? It couldnít be her father- heís dead. In the end she solves the mystery and they all end up happy. I liked my book because it was a mystery book. I liked two characters in my book. One was a boy named Jeremy and one was a girl named Emma. I felt a combination of feeling and wondering. I felt sorry for her because her fatherís not there, and she has to solve this big mystery. I felt wondering because I wondered what would happen next and if Emma would solve the mystery. I would recommend this book because it was exiting and mysterious. I think my brother would like this book because he likes mysteries. In fact, I think anyone who likes mysteries would like this book. I think people would like the part where the girl solves the mystery.
