The Election-Day Disaster by Ron Roy

Roy, Ron The Election-Day Disaster pgs. 87. Random House, Inc. CHAPTER BOOK. KC is one lucky girl. Her stepfather is the president of the United States and this year, he is letting her have a big Halloween party at the White House. Everything goes great until the media get a hold of some pictures from the party that could cost her stepfather his re-election. It’s up to KC and her friend, Marshall to discover who is behind the pictures and why someone would want to spoil the president’s re-election. Will they be able to solve the mystery before election day or will KC find herself living somewhere other than the White House? Although not as fast-paced as some of the books for this age group, this is a good, easy-to-read mystery for those who enjoyed reading the A to Z Mysteries series by this author or, in general, like this genre. Drawings are well done and do a good job of complementing the story. This book would make a great addition to any collection, especially if that collection has a large number of mystery readers. I would also recommend White House White-out by Ron Roy (a book that crosses over between the two series). EL(2-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira-Youth Services Librarian-HUN Public Library.
