So, remember Nancy Drew and how you read one of her books after another? Meet Sammy Keyes, a ten-year-old girl, who lives with her grandmother in a "home" where no children are allowed. Sammy is the kind of young lady who faces life head-on and rises to every occasion. The delight of these books is seeing how Sammy takes on the mystery in her life. Entertaining and not too scary! You don't HAVE to read them in order, but they do link to each other, so reading in order might add to the fun. Other books in the series include Sammy Keyes and the Sisters of Mercy (Book 2), Sammy Keyes and the Runaway Elf, Sammy Keyes and the Curse of Moustache Mary, Sammy Keyes and the Hollywood Mummy, Sammy Keyes and the Skeleton Man, and Sammy Keyes and the Psycho Kitty Queen.
