This book is about Cam and Eric playing baseball. Cam and Eric are having a catch and the baseball goes missing! They’re looking for the baseball. They looked in the bushes and it wasn’t there. They looked in the trees and it is … sorry can’t tell you. Read to find out! I thought the book was great.

I like the characters because Cam says “click” so she can remember where they searched because she has a photographic memory. My connection to this story was when my brother and I lost our baseball and looked for it for days. My connection to another story titled The Green School Mystery. Both books included a mystery to be solved by Cam.

This is a good book for children in grades 2 and 3. It doesn’t have too many difficult words to read. They are just right. If you like mysteries, then this book is for you!
