Framed by James Ponti
Hi, I am Sophie. I like to mountain bike, water ski, snow ski, and do about every other sport. But, I also love to read. My favorite author is Dusti Bowling.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could work for the FBI with your best friend and solve cases when you’re only 12-years-old? That is exactly what Florian Bates gets to do. In this book, Florian Bates and Margaret Campbell work with the FBI, to solve a case in which 4 paintings are stolen from The National Art Gallery. Florian makes this all possible by using T.O.A.S.T (the Theory Of All Small Things). This is when you concentrate on the small details instead of the big things and they add up to the big picture. In this book, not only do they solve a case, but they also find out some information about Margaret’s birth parents, who she has been looking for since she was born. When they think things can’t get any weirder, the two find a stolen ring, then Florian gets kidnapped. It sounds fun and exciting and a good excuse to get out of school but when the FBI needs their help, Florian’s mom always makes sure that school comes first. Margaret and Florian create a strong bond with each other and with Marcus Rivers, the FBI agent they work with. Florian and Margaret experience many hardships and struggles but they push through them together.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery book.
