Take my advice, talk to your parents..
I remember being asked for Peg Kehret’s books a lot. I learned that her name is pronounced “carrot” and that she lives in Washington State. But I had never read one of her books until I saw Dangerous Deception on the new book shelf. Sixth grader Emmy Rushford convinces her study group to collect food for two hungry children for a community service assignment. Things go astray when the children and their mother disappear. Emmy decides to search for the family. Emmy doesn’t exactly lie to her mom but she keeps a lot of what she is doing secret. Events start to spiral out of control, with a car crash, a cat thrown in a dumpster, and a neighbor who may be a burglar. I recommend this exciting read for kids in grades four to six. I am definitely going to read Peg Kehret’s previous books!
