Grace and Sophie sneak around their neighborhood on late-night spying missions. On their third night they see their school counselor hacking something with a red cleaver - is it murder or is she only making her famous pickled beets? The counselor, Dr. Agford (Dr. Awkward) is suspicious with her helmet wig, falsetto voice, and staring eyes. The girls are convinced she's up to something sinister so they begin their own undercover investigation. Sophie narrates this perceptive story with wry humor and a knack for seeing beyond the obvious. This debut mystery will keep readers guessing with spine-tingling scenarios and shrewd investigators. Ages 9-12
