Party Drama! by Ida Siegal -- ADVISABLE

Siegal, Ida Party Drama! (Emma Is on the Air #2), illustrated by Karla Peña. Scholastic Inc., Sept. 29, 2015. $4.99. Content: G.

In this follow-up to the first in the series, Emma has been perfecting her news reports, so when her best friend's Halloween costume goes missing, Emma doesn't hesitate to begin her investigation. If she does it right, not only will Sophia have a great holiday, but Emma will be one step closer to fame, and their entire class will have a chance to win a pizza party in a local costume contest.

Emma's determination is admirable, and she and her friends work well together to solve the mystery. The cliffhangers at the ending of each chapter help keep readers engaged, and the mystery at the end of the book hints at further installments in the series.

EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
