I So Don't Do Mysteries book.

I So Don't Do Mysteries book. I So Don't Do Mysteries by.

It’s like our school cafeteria: crowded and echoey-noisy, with too many different smells all jumbled together. I’ve already checked in and am clutching my A boarding pass. My dad explained the whole. system to me. On Southwest, you don’t get assigned a seat but get herded onto the plane with everyone in your group, A, B or C. The As go first. The earlier you arrive at the airport, the more likely you are to snag an A, and then you have a better chance at snagging the seat of your choice. We’re waiting for Junie and Amber.

Can I do anything? I can’t believe I attacked Josh Morton with a door. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading. Other author's books: I So Don't Do Spooky. I So Don't Do Famous.

About I So Don’t Do Mysteries. SO HERE I am spending spring break in California with my best friend, Junie. Our chaperone is a teenager, like us. And soon I’ll get to hang out with the coolest, cutest boy in the Southwest. And I have to do it because my supercop mom is counting on me. Did I mention she’s a ghost? A ghost who can make contact.

Книга: Summy Barrie I So Don't Do Mysteries. Inspector Anastasia Kamenskaya of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department in a series of psychological mysteries by ALEXANDRA MARININA. Concurrence of Circumstances 199. Автор, электронная книга.

In fact, she's the polar opposite of Nancy Drew: she'd rather spend her time gorging on Oreos, shopping at the mall, hanging with her nerdy-but-sweet best friend Junie, trying to avoid her new stepmother, and fantasizing about her major crush, Josh Morton.

When thirteen-year-old Sherry is visited by the ghost of her mother asking Sherry to help solve a case involving rhinoceros poaching at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, Sherry's involvement not only helps save the rhinos, but it also brings mothe.

When thirteen-year-old Sherry is visited by the ghost of her mother asking Sherry to help solve a case involving rhinoceros poaching at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, Sherry's involvement not only helps save the rhinos, but it also brings mother and daughter closer together than ever before.

Laughs, ghosts, and a lip-gloss-loving teen sleuth!Sherry (short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin is spending spring break in California with her best friend, Junie. She can’t wait to hang out in the sun, hit the mall, and spend time with cutie-pie Josh.Then . . . a freaky change of plans. Sherry’s mom, a cop killed in the line of duty, contacts her. Not only is she a ghost, she’s a ghost in danger of flunking out of the Academy of Spirits, and she needs Sherry’s help. Unless she solves an important mystery in San Diego, she’ll be banished to an afterlife for ghost failures! If Sherry wants to be a normal seventh grader (as in, one who doesn’t communicate with ghosts), she can’t tell anybody about her mom—or what she has to do. Not her brother, not Junie, and especially not Josh. It’s up to Sherry alone to save the day. Except . . . she so doesn’t do mysteries.

I got this book for my 11 year old daughter and she absolutely loved it. She loved it so much, she asked me to get her the other books in the series and right a good review. She is also a lover of books like Nancy Drew and 11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass, which I also recommend.

I so don't do mysteries very accurately describes the life of a 7th grade girl struggling with grades, a social life, and family issues, while Barrie Summy adds the entertaining twist of a normal teenager who just so happens to communicate with ghosts. Sherlock Holmes Baldwin, a 13 year old miss whose mother died in the line of duty 1 1/2 years ago, finds out that her mom isn't completely unreachable. Why? Because she reappears to Sherry as a ghost, inviting her to work as a mother-daughter duo with her for the Acedemy of Spirits. As the never
unentertaining plot continues, we learn from this incredible character the importance of bravery, perseverance, and loyalty.
In the near coming summer in Pheonix, Arizona, students frantically tie their grades up at Saguaro Middle School, which is a big problem for Sherry, considering her soon-to-be stepmom, Paula is a teacher there. Unfortunately, Sherry has other problems. As she agreed to assist her mother to work for the Acedemy of Spirits, she has to reach them at their meeting spot... what other than the local Dairy Queen? Later, Sherry is obligated to go to California for summer break, where she ends up solving her first case.
Imagine attending your father and stepmom's wedding a year and a half past your mother's death. Anxiety is already burying you alive deep inside a hole of stress. Then, you realize you're teaming up with your ghost mother in a secret organization. This to me demonstrates great courage, even though it may not be the "heroic" type. This example from the text is: "Forget about losing control. At least I manage to hold back the tears until after the door clicks into place" [pg. 52]. Sherry is unafraid towards expressing her emotional self, no matter the consequences, and that proves how brave she must be in order to do so.
Adding on to all the pressure Sherry is already under, her mom will be kicked out of the Acedemy, (due to her failing classes,) if Sherry and her mother don't accomplish this case. Consequently, that would lead to never communicating with eachother again. In this example from the text, you will find that Sherry expresses grit in her belief of her and her mother: "'I really need your help,' she says. [...] My mom needs me. My überindependent, never-turns-down-a-challenge needs me. [...] 'What would I have to do?'" [pg. 16]. This kind of commitment shown to her mother will guarantee that Sherry is not going to back out.
In addition to the strength Sherry holds in her entire mind, she also expresses an overachieving amount of loyalty. In one moment, her best friend, Junie, apologizes to her for her behavior recently. It has been difficult on Sherry, especially with her balancing all of her problems with an unsupportive friend tagging along. "'But I should've trusted you, and I didn't.' [...] I'm relieved because Junie's my best friend, and now we can be a unit again, and she can help me solve the mystery. I'm resentful because she's been so mean. [...] I want to scream, 'I told you so!' Instead, I relax and hug her back'" [pg. 172-173]. Even after everything they'd been through, Sherry wouldn't hold a grudge and expect roses and a note saying, "sorry", but rather a hug and an "I'm glad to have you back."
Through good or hard times, Sherry expresses an emotional relativity for each quality she owns, and how it makes a positive remark on her life. As the readers, we learn that as long as you believe greatly in something, it can be accomplished. This book is definitely recommended among female tweens and up!

Sherry's got typical seventh grade issues. She's not so great at school and she's got a serious crush on Josh, an uber cute eighth grader, and makes an unforgettable impression on him by bloodying his nose. Plus, her dad's engaged to Paula, the math teacher at school, aka The Ruler. But if you're thinking that I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES is just another book about an everyday teen who just wants to be loved, you'd be so wrong. There's nothing normal about Sherry's spring break.

You see, Sherry had big plans for her break, plans that involved sleeping in, shopping, and then more shopping with her best friend, Junie. Until her dad told her that he and The Ruler have moved up their wedding date to this weekend. And she'll have to spend her break in San Diego with her aging great-aunt. Course, that's better than staying with her little brother at her dotty old grandma's house. The same one who believes in ghosts and thinks she communicates with the spirits. Shoot, she even thinks her dead husband is a bird. How weird is that?

When Sherry goes outside to curl up in her favorite pear tree, her mother (who, by the way, was killed in the line of duty a year and a half ago), shows up in a rush of wind and a cloud of coffee, and Sherry's no longer sure what's weird and what's not. Even stranger, it turns out her mother needs her help solving a case of unauthorized banana treats at a rhino enclosure in (you'll never guess) San Diego! Her? Sherry? Go undercover? Think on her feet? Solve a mystery? No way. Sherry's always been the one most likely to mess up, if she doesn't freeze up first. But no matter how bizarre it all sounds, her mother needs her. Actually needs her!

It doesn't take long to convince her dad to send Junie with her to San Diego, even if it does mean she's also going to have to put up with Junie's older cousin, Amber. Soon, Sherry's up to her elbows in meringue and buckets of coffee, pounding the pavement like a regular ol' sleuth till she's got blisters on her feet. Who's trying to kill the rhinos and why? Will she be able to find out in time to save them? Will her directionally-challenged mother be able to find her so
they can work together as she promised? Can she trust Junie with her secret? And what about Josh? Will he forget she even exists while she's gone?

I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES is a funny, engaging debut novel and Sherry's antics will keep you turning pages since nothing happens as expected. Ms. Summy's title suggest she so doesn't do mysteries, but I believe she does them very, very well, and I surely hope she will be brewing up more mysteries for Sherry and her mother in the future.
