KIRKUS REVIEW

Lindy Blues, a pint-sized investigative reporter with her own news show, wants to follow in the footsteps of her idol, Katie Couric. Although her cameraman is her little brother and her LBN—Lindy Blues Network—airs only in her garage on Saturday nights, Lindy tackles the latest breaking news with the panache and determination that rivals seasoned correspondents twice her age. Cirrone offers readers a spunky, likable heroine who thinks on her feet and truly embodies an entrepreneurial spirit. Lindy’s investigation of a disappearing ice cream shop is just tricky enough to solve, keeping readers tuned in until the satisfying dénouement. Woodruff uses soft-pencil sketches to highlight the ups and downs of Lindy’s broadcasting adventures, bringing life to the characters. Cirrone’s mix of an intriguing mystery and a feisty, capable heroine will hold widespread appeal for readers. (Fiction. 7-10)
