Deborah Lincoln 5.0 out of 5 stars Great YA Fun! Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2021 Verified Purchase Sassy, precocious, relentless: That’s Laurel Hedges, eleven years old and determined to make it to twelve. Laurel and her mother are on the run from the Evil Lurker, through department stores, on mysterious planes, in the company of Uncle Bill, with the help of Grandma Olivia, Aiden, and blind Uncle J. And always on the lookout for her missing father. This is fast-paced adventure for any tweener (and her parents), leaving Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden (okay, that’s a throw-back) in the dust. Laurel is a hoot, a girl heroine for the 21st century. Keltz gets the voice spot on and weaves a story that leaves the reader begging for the next installment. Well done!
Neal Lemery 5.0 out of 5 stars A Terrific Tale Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2021 Verified Purchase Spy thriller, mystery, adventure! It doesn’t get any better than this for an entertaining story that takes you into the life of a very clever girl whose life is a series of unanswered twists and intrigues. I came to love Laurel and her intuitive pursuit of the truth, and how she unraveled the many questions of family life that come her way. Noted and talented author Karen Keltz spins an engaging tale that makes this middle grade novel a page-turning story for any age. One of my friends praised the book by saying she couldn’t put it down, and I would agree. Keltz hits it out of the ball park with this tale, and Laurel Hedges and the Evil Lurker joins her first book, Sally Jo Survives Sixth Grade, as clever and engaging storytelling at its finest.
