Review
This was a excellent book i truly enjoyed the main character being female (mariel is now my favorite character). the adventure and sorrow and drama between her and her father made the book so much more interesting, and i enjoyed the fact that the bad guy was once again a rat and not another animal. i really am enjoying this series and i recommend it to 11-13 year olds because it is slightly violent. But the fact they are animals makes it seem its to be read by young children.in the end it is a really great book i will be reading again really soon !!  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog

Best friends Lee Jones and Joan Lee have a lot more in common besides their names. On the eve of their class trip, they each learn their parents are getting divorced. Ugh. The class trip is a dud, so Lee and Joan steal away to talk. What follows is an afternoon nap in a lighthouse, walking up to find the Golden Gate Bridge gone and meeting a young man named Sam Clemens, who is on the run from a mysterious stranger.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
