I Want to Read It (52): Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.




Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter by Beth Fantaskey, March 1, 2016. Published by HMH Books for Young Readers. Source: Want to Read.
It’s 1920s Chicago—the guns-and-gangster era of Al Capone—and it’s unusual for a girl to be selling the Tribune on the street corner. But ten-year-old Isabel Feeney is unusual . . . unusually obsessed with being a news reporter. She can’t believe her luck when she stumbles not only into a real-live murder scene, but also into her hero, the famous journalist Maude Collier. The story of how the smart, curious, loyal Isabel fights to defend the honor of her accused friend and latches on to the murder case like a dog on a pant leg makes for a winning, thoroughly entertaining middle grade mystery. 

Why

This sounds like an exciting read! Especially with it being set in the 1920's and with the main character, Isabel, who's striving to become a star reporter. Now, I'm curious to see how she'll tackle the story handed her way and how things will play out for her.

Have you read Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter? What did you think of it, if you've read it?
