Review: Cody has many mysteries in her big world. When her best friend Spencer and his family moves in with their grandmother next door, the two work together figuring out things that happen at school and in their neighborhood. One of the biggest mysteries is Mr. Meen, grandma's neighbor and who he is welcoming home. The author authentically captures the rapidly-expanding life awareness of the characters (and targeted readers) at this age for a very relatable story about learning patience and working with others to solve real problems.
