Grade 3-6-- Strange noises awaken Caitlin at midnight but she can't tell who is digging in the Reddings' backyard. Is it Bones, her 13-year-old neighbor who never seems to have enough to eat? Or is it the Dorman brothers, who have already been in trouble with the police several times? When Caitlin and her new friend, Missy, investigate, the sixth graders get into some dangerous and irresponsible situations before the mystery is solved. This is a bit of a departure for DeClements, offering less direct humor than her previous titles. Here she examines some of the problems faced by modern families. Because her father travels a lot and her mother can't cope with having had another baby at 43, Caitlin finds that much of her three-month-old brother's care falls to her. The personalities of the adults provide an assortment of interesting characters, not all of whom are admirable. The brother's baby-sitter is irresponsible; Missy's adoptive father is detestible; Bones's mother is incompetent and in the end seeks psychiatric help. DeClements does sustain a suspensful mood that will appeal to mystery fans. --Jeanette Larson, Texas State Library, Austin
