In The Mardi Gras Chase (True Girls) (Volume 1) by Maggie M Larche, Melanie, Kate and Faye are attending one of the many Mardi Gras parades in Mobile, Alabama that usually lasts for several weeks. Melanie is bored and can’t see what all of the hoopla is about in attending the parade. Faye is unhappy because she never seems to get enough beads in her bag, and Kate is ecstatic because she is quickly filling up her bag with beads. As Melanie is contemplating whether to stay to watch this annual event - which bores her every year - something catches her attention. Melanie sees that the signage themes that precede each parade float has one of the letters upside down in the titles. Why? The Mardi Gras Chase (True Girls) (Volume 1) by Maggie M Larche is ideal for a pre-teen because it not only tells a great story, but helps with cognitive thinking. As Melanie goes through the steps to solve the mystery of the letters R, C, E, N, R, A, P that appear out of sync, the adventure begins.
I loved how Maggie rolls out The Mardi Gras Chase (True Girls) (Volume 1) because she gets the reader immediately involved in the story. Melanie looks for clues beginning with the parade the day before and, upon her investigation, she notices from the photos that the F in the title was backwards. Maggie gets the reader going through the process as they help to discover the clues and uncover the mystery with Melanie and her friends. The Mardi Gras Chase (True Girls) (Volume 1) by Maggie M Larche is not only a great book, but a great way for the reader to process thoughts, create solutions, and complete the puzzles.
