"What I do is weed out the real from the unreal, the fairy queens from the princesses, the sad people from the attention-grabbers."

"Where am I in all that?"

"I'm not sure yet, but it ain't lookin' good..."


Baron dreams of being like his favorite hard-boiled detectives: tough, sexy and in control. In reality he's anything but, as his older sister, Kitty, never fails to point out. When a new client presents herself at their backyard detective agency, Baron and his best friend, Myles, are suddenly at odds. Will Wilson, new in town and lonely, choose Baron or Myles—or neither? What happened to her sister's blue whale? And her sister? But the biggest mystery of all is whether Baron will ever tell Wilson how he feels.


Quill & Quire - February 1, 2008
"Trembath deftly manages to introduce ideas about gender equality, the grieving process, and a courageous acceptance of health problems without becoming didactic or losing his appeal to a pre-teen readership."
VOYA - December 1, 2007
"An engaging combination of humor and fledgling romance for middle schoolers."
CM Magazine - October 1, 2007
"Quick paced dilemmas within the story keep the reader going...Recommended."
