"Carey takes the puzzle-book format...and gives it a rawboned and rich human story with a vivid sense of place. The math-centered clues are accessible but not obvious...Yet readers not absorbed by the math can sit back, let Di, Tom, and their cohorts do the numeric labors, and simply enjoy the adventure."
From the Publisher
Annotation Action-packed and math-filled, this mystery follows a gang of nerdy kids as they try to discover where their adored math tutor disappeared to and what the town energy plant has to do with it. After Mrs. Clarke goes missing from Adjacent Trailer Park, Di and Tom discover a mathematical clue that leads them below the ground into a mess they never could have imagined possible. Although there's a lot of math in this book, it's as much about friendship as any other middle grade novel.
