Ruby Redfort is a kick. I'm liking this even more than the first one.

Ruby was first introduced in the Clarice Beans novels. Ruby is a detective, but I see her more as a spy-in-training. Strange things are happening in Twinford, where Ruby and her parents live. Sea creatures are acting strangely, oceans currents are changing, and the Twinford pirates have been attacking ships. What's a young spy and codebraker to do -- Why jump right in and solve the case. Ruby is adventurous and a master of misdirection when it comes to getting in her spy training. The book is a delight to read and at the same time shows a 13 year-old who is smart and cool and who doesn't need foul language to make a point. I look forward to reading other books in the series.

For Helena
First words
The sun flickered on the ocean, cutting bright diamonds of light into the surface of the indigo water.
Quotations
Clue: It swims in the sea, but it's named after a guadruped. It was once on the surface, but now it's on the bottom. (p. 33)
There was a jingle playing, some commercial about the benefits of eating cereal with raisins in it if you wanted to have a productive day at school. Ruby couldn't see it herself; she had always felt that raisins had no business being in breakfast cereal. Who wants to eat a shriveled grape floating in milk? (p. 137)
