Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  LGar
Since seventh-grade Sherry (short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin has an eighth-grade boyfriend, she is sort of a celebrity at her middle school. On top of that, she is a very well-known detective in the spirit world for solving mysteries with her spirit mother. In "I So Don't Do Famous," Sherry gets to work on her biggest case yet - in Hollywood, California! People have been commiting burglaries on the houses of young celebrities, and it is up to Sherry to discover who is hosting the heists. Also, she's got to convince the Beverly Hills Police Department that she can solve this mystery.

I thought this book was GREAT! I also reviewed the third book in this series, "I So Don't Do Makeup," and I liked both books. I could easily picture the setting of the book, since Ms. Summy described it so well. The author's voice was that of a 13-year-old, as it was in first-person narration. I could picture Sherry as a real person because the author did such a good job of sounding like a thirteen-year- old girl. Again, this was a great book, and I would DEFINITELY recommend it to someone who likes mysteries.
