Mini-review: What to say about this book. Basically there's no mystery, really only in the kids imaginations. The only real mystery is that the Strange Woman shows up and at this point she's really starting to annoy me, mainly because I haven't finish the Europe trip arc and so I have no idea who or what she is.
