The Runaway Friend: A Kirsten Mystery


As all of you probably know three new American girl mysteries came out in March. I have read The Runaway Friend, and want to give my opinions on it.

The plot of the book is as follows,

Kirsten Larson has just moved to Minnesota and is making friends. Her family is just getting settled. It is right before the harvest and Kirsten’s father and uncle have hired Erik Sandahl to help bring the wheat in. Suddenly Erik dissapears… This is not good for two reasons. One Erik owes Uncle Olav (Kirsten’s uncle) money, and two he has to help with the harvest before it rains and all the wheat is ruined.

In my opinion this book had a great plot and is fun to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries or is fond of Kirsten.
