Kids Summer Reading Club: A Girl’s Best Friend


Welcome back to our third link-up for the Kids Summer Reading Club! This month we read “Girls Best Friend” By Leslie Margolis.

Girl's Best Friend (Maggie Brooklyn Mystery Book 1) by [Margolis, Leslie]

What is Maggie’s secret?

“Maggie doesn’t tell her parents that she walks dogs, and she is also a secret detective.”

What is the name of the dog who was held for ransom?

“Kermit was held for ransom. It was Maggie’s ex-BFF’s dog and she was nice to help.”

Who did Maggie not suspect would be involved with the ransom?

“She thinks a lot of people could be involved. Milo, Cassie, Dr. Reese, Jane, she thought everyone was involved and looked at all of her clues.”

What does Maggie and her brother, Finn share?

“They have the same middle name (Brooklyn) and they share Birthdays’s because they are twins…duh!”

What are the noises in the walls of her apartment building?

“At first they thought it was mice or raccoons but it ended up being Isabel walking around in secret passageways.”

How old is Maggie and Finn?

“They are 12.”

Our next book will be from the Maggie Brooklyn series as well…Vanishing Act

    1. Maddi has loved it and she has found new books that she loves as well. It has been such a great encouragement for her to read.


    1. Allie, have you heard of the “Big Nate” series? Those are really good! And popular with the boys. Dog Man is also a good series 🙂


    1. I don’t think ours carries it either. Has Marissa ever read The Dork Diaries series? That is another favorite of Maddi’s.


    1. Thanks Heather! Maddi has loved these books. Great selection 🙂 I love this book club and how much it has motivated her to read this summer…I don’t even know if she knows she is doing homework 🙂


    1. Thank you Beth! I have really noticed Maddi picking up books because she likes reading, not just to complete it for her reading log. Thanks so much!
