Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  CWay_RPEMS
Nicholas Mettleson is angry when he learns that he and his younger twin sisters will be sent off to spend the summer with their father's uncle in a small lakeside town in Ohio. But, once they get there, it's hard not to like Uncle Nick and his dog, Pistol. The summer seems to promise lots of adventure, from the spectacular view from his bedroom to Uncle Nick giving them sailing lessons on the lake. Nicholas soon meets a friend, Charlie, who can throw a crazy curve ball, and the two of them spend hours sailing together. Then, Nicholas and his sisters find a secret compartment in his room. In it is old film from a movie called The Seaweed Strangler and a love letter from their dad to a woman named Franny. Nicholas teams up with Charlie to solve the mystery and figure out what connection his father has with the lake.

I really enjoyed this book. The plot is very suspenseful, with unexpected twists and turns. I especially like how the author develops the characters; each is described in extensive detail. Charlie and the twins are both really funny and sensitive. They have become my favorite characters. The setting is vivid, colorful, and easily pictured inside the reader's head. Overall this is a great book, full of mystery and suspense. I recommend it to ages 10 and up.
