Praise For The Ghostwriter Secret

"Barnett’s second Brixton Brothers mystery continues the whimsically sardonic adventures of everyone’s soon-to-be-favorite clueless-yet-earnest boy detective–wannabe. Shot through with moments of goofiness and dotted with Rex’s black-and-white illustrations, this is sure to please existing fans and win new ones."-- KIRKUS



"Barnett has written a fun, adventure-filled book. This is a great choice for slow or reluctant readers."–SLJ
