    1. A missing family pet, Trixie’s brother Mart acting weird, and vandalism at school start of this mystery. When the police start to suspect Mart of the crime, Trixie has to work fast to prove his innocence.For a later book in the series, this is definitely a strong one. The characters are all present and at their very best. We get a few laughs along the way as well. The plot is a tad obvious, but it’s still fun. My biggest complaint is that Sergeant Molinson would actually consider Mart a susp [...]

    2. I read the Trixie Belden series when I was a kid. I found #29, #30 (this one), and #31 at a thrift shop the other day and couldn't resist buying them. The most comforting memory of my childhood was getting away from the real world by reading books, and the Trixie Belden series was a big part of it. In "The Mystery of the Midnight Marauder," the aforementioned Marauder is suspected to be an angry, misled high school student. While the Marauder commits vandalism at the school and at businesses aro [...]

    3. a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked! I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had [...]

    5. I read the Trixie Belden books while growing up and as an adult. I don't remember much about this book anymore, but I know I read it many times. There were/are so many books to read! I can't keep track of all of them.

    6. This later installment reminds me of the early Trixies: the kids have to solve the mystery to help one of their own. This story also addresses feelings of isolation and deep longing for friends that many teens feel. An enjoyable read!

    7. The mystery is kind of silly in this one, but I love Mart being all mysterious and his reason why is just too funny! I really like this one, even though Dan "grunted" an inordinate number of times. Hello, author, get a thesaurus!

    8. One of the better Kenny books. The concept was good, but I felt like the execution was a bit off in parts. The important characters were a bit too obvious, because they were introduced in ways where you ~knew~ they weren't just there are background padding, which rather gave the game away ;)

    9. Although this is a re-read, I absolutely didn't remember this one at all. Another good cute, easy read, fun with my favorite characters from childhood, a nice and quick and enjoyable read.
