I read the book Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage. The book is about a boy and a girl named Mo and Dale. They live in a small town, called Tupelo Landing, that not many people know about. There has been a murder in the town and Mo and Dale start a club known as Desperado Detectives in order to figure out who killed their close friend, Mr. Jesse. They want to know why anybody would harm such a nice man like him. My opinion on the book is that it is a hilarious, suspenseful mystery that was very well written. I would always want to know what would happen next in the story. For example, the author made it suspenseful by foreshadowing parts that lead to Mr. Jesse's murder. I would rate this book a 5/5 because it is one of my favorite books.The book is realistic fiction because murders can happen in real life. People would have to get to the bottom of the crime just like they did in the story. It can also be realistic fiction because Mo and Dale created a detective club and some kids could also start their own club like this. The type of audience that should read this book are kids that are about 12-14 years old. This is because it has a murder in it and it might not be appropriate for lower ages. This book could also be for someone that is a little older than 14 if they like mystery and suspense in books. The problem in this book is how Mo and Dale are left clueless on why anybody would harm Mr. Jesse. An internal conflict in this book is how Mo has no mother because her mother left her at sea and she ended up floating to the small town, Tupelo Landing, without parents. An external conflict in the book is how Mo and Dale are trying to solve the mystery of who killed Mr. Jesse.
