    My first post BEA13 (Book Expo America) read is Octavia Spencer's new children's mystery "Randi Rhodes Ninja Detective: The Case of the Time-Capsule Bandit". Ms. Spencer cites Nancy Drew as a childhood favorite and it is clear that her new series taps into that lineage. I must say I approached this book with some trepidation since celebrity-written children's books are all too often sub-par. I am happy to state, however, that this book is a winner!I love Randi Rhodes. After the death of her mother and a move away from her beloved Brooklyn, Randi now lives in Deer Creek, Tennessee, her parent's hometown. At 12 she is already an accomplished (although secret) detective and black belt martial artist, yet Ms. Spencer lets us know that Randi is just a young girl, on the brink of adulthood, missing her mother, and trying to make her own identity. Subtle messages of inclusion, friendship, and even feminism, permeate the book, deftly handled by Ms. Spencer in a way that new writers often do not. The clever additions of "Ninja Tasks" at the end of the book are doable and fun. There is even an online component for additional education and enjoyment. I am delighted to have a new series for kids outgrowing Cam Jansen and the Nate the Great. I will put Octavia Spencer's book in the hands of children ages 8-13 looking for realistic mysteries. This one ranks up there with Grisham's Theodore Boone series, the Enola Holmes series by Nancy Springer, as well as the Echo Falls Mysteries by Peter Abrahams. Brava Octavia Spencer!

    My daughter (10) is leaving the review....I liked this book because it was very funny. I like all the characters. And it was a good mystery.

    Narrated by Octavia Spencer. I was a little apprehensive hearing Octavia Spencer start out in a bit of a monotone but she hits her stride as a reader when Randi and her father move down south and Spencer plays with the various accents of the townspeople such as the Sheriff, Angus, and Pudge. In the end, a pleasant production for the family to enjoy.

    Since her mother’s death a year ago twelve-year-old Miranda Rhodes has taken on the role of Glenn Street, the fictional girl detective in her father’s series of best-selling mysteries. She’s solved thirty-two cases in her Brooklyn neighborhood, “cases that the NYPD won’t bother with…litterbugs…bullies, plant snatchers, and pigeon nappers.” But now her father is moving them to a little town in the Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee. And she doesn’t want to go to a place where she’ll be bored to death.

    Randi Rhodes is the only child of author Herb Rhodes, the mastermind behind the great detective series staring Glenn Street; so it isn’t surprising that Randi herself aspires to be a great detective.After the passing of her mother, and her father giving up his writing for a while; they move to the small town of Deer Creek where a mystery has occurred, the time-capsule has gone missing. Randi is determined to show her father that she is no longer a baby and that she can help the town solve this crazy misdeed.I have to say, this middle grade book pleasantly surprised me. It was full of adventure, a great strong female character who likes having a black belt and doesn’t want to be pink and frilly, and a great cast of characters overall. The plot was fun and fast paced and a middle grade reader would definitely enjoy this book. To make it even more awesome there is an appendix of Ninja Detective things to do along with the book: like how to spy, make a casting of a footprint, and there is even a place to login on a computer and become part of the ninja detective team. This interactive aspect is really building on what middle grade readers like with their books.Overall, I found the book easy to read and enjoyable. I think both boys and girls in the middle grade range would also love it!
