What I liked about this book: 1) Set in Mexico, giving kids a window into another culture, 2) A mystery! 3) Lots of facts about Frida Kahlo. 4) A local author. It did not quite reach the amazing mark for me, though. Although Paloma's sleuthing (inspired by Lulu Pennywhistle) at times reminded me of Nancy Drew, the moving pieces were a bit scattered. I lost my way here and there with the lot developments. It does come together at the end and I will most definitely recommend it to our library patrons. Oh, and that cover -- totally amazing!

Paloma is a modern-day, multicultural Nancy Drew, making observations, spotting clues, taking notes, and ultimately solving an intriguing mystery. The author deftly weaves in Mexican culture and information about the artist Frida Kahlo too. If readers are anything like me, they'll want to learn more about Frida Kahlo, Casa Azul, and whether Frida really had a peacock ring!
