Eddie Whatever by Lois Ruby

Children’s fiction

Eddie must do a service project for his upcoming bar mitzvah. He chooses to do service hours at a local retirement home with some motivation from his mother. There he finds that he actually likes being there and that the residents aren’t so bad. When some of the residents valuables come up missing, blame is pushed on him. It is up to him to solve the mystery of who is really stealing the items.
Opinion
This is a great middle school novel. The mystery is appropriate to middle schoolers and is consuming. I certainly had my villain picked out from the beginning but it was fun to see blame cast on different characters throughout. This would make a great addition to school and classroom libraries. I think students will devour this book.
Many thanks to Lerner Publishing Group and Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this book.
