My review is about the book Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett. I bought it, thinking it would be a nice change to the books I usually read (otherwise known as 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'). Once I was done that series, I started Chasing Vermeer.
The book is about two sixth-graders named Petra and Calder who become friends to solve a mystery hidden behind the works of artist Johannes Vermeer, and the theft of one of his most priceless paintings. They find a great deal of clues, but as the story goes on, they start to get tangled up in the crime themselves.
Though some parts confused me a little, it is a great book, packed with mystery on every page. Once you start to read it, you wont be able to put it down. The book is approximately 252 pages, though the writing is rather big.
You wont be able to help feeling happy or sad for the characters in this story and I would reccomend to anybody of any age.
P.S. If a kid is reading this, and their parents have read \'The Da Vinci Code\' by Dan Brown (and enjoyed it), reccomend this to them. They will probably enjoy this too.
P.P.S. If you like this try: The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett.
