If getting your best friends to stop fighting and dealing with Margaret wasn’t hard enough, now Elizabeth finds herself faced with the task of trying to find out who the Wilson Middle School thief is and it won’t be easy. When things around school start disappearing, Elizabeth takes on the challenge of becoming a detective.
She rounds up her friends and tells them her plan to catch the thief. But it’s actually Pappus’ plan. And, like all of Pappus’ plans, it’s a good one. Still, Elizabeth has her doubts that it will work. It seems the thief is just too smart.
When Elizabeth discovers the thief is planning to steal money from the school book fair, it becomes a race against time for Elizabeth and her friends to find out who the thief is before the day of the fair. Then there’s the mystery of the house across the street. What’s with that house anyway? How can Elizabeth possibly solve both mysteries?
I’m a Detective! Elizabeth Marie Hutchinson-When I Dream not only takes the reader on a journey with Elizabeth and her friends to catch the Wilson Middle School thief, but it also provides a lesson in doing the right thing and coming together as a community to help a neighbor in need.
