One thought on “The Missing Heir, by Tracy Barrett

  1. Tracy Barret has again written an interesting mystery. A great read but a basic mystery with some twists. It was a bit boring and easy to figue out near the end and it was not as mysterious as I had hoped. I would recommend this book for boys and girls in elementary and early middleschool. I don’t think that this book is a Newbery winner.
