The Edgar-winning seventh-grade sleuth takes on the art world, not to mention affairs of the heart, in the eighth novel in this charming series. Wearing high-top sneakers to a classy art gallery reception, she mortifies the elite guests by asking why an orange splot on a canvas is worth $8,000, and then, when a masked gunman attempts to rob the gallery, Sammy tackles him. Meanwhile, as romance warms up between Sammy and her worst enemy’s older brother, Sammy’s grandmother’s beau, Hudson Graham, becomes smitten by a painter with a dark past. Actress Tara Sands is able to take on both Sammy’s precocity and the art community’s artificiality with her fast, lively, and totally engaging performance. S.E.S.
