Professional Reviews

Dan Hays, Statesman Journal
Here's a fast-moving, nicely written mystery thriller for young readers.

Author McCracken, who lives in Oregon City, says it is "written with the 8- to 13-year-old audience in mind."

He's probably got that targeted about right except for two things: The writing is too sophisticated for your average 8-year-old, and there are a lot of adults who will get much enjoyment out of this novel.

The book is about a young boy who seemingly has no end with trouble. His parents dropped him off at his grandparents' home, promising to return to pick him up. Ten years later, he still is there...until his uncle sends him to Saint Michael's Abbey & Home for Boys. There he enounters new friends and ... the title mystery.

McCracken hopes this will be the first of a series of five Charlie books, all based on "my experiences and the stories I heard while a teenager at Mount Angel Seminary High School."

He is a good enough writer to pull that off. This book has some moments that are somewhat artificial, but for the most part, it is solid work, interesting, suspenceful and full of understanding about young boys.
