Authors: Sean Stewart, Jordan Weisman and Cathy Brigg

Cathy Vickers is an average high school student with a not-so-average problem. Check out Kidzworld's review of Cathy's Book: If Found Call (650) 266-8233.

Meet Cathy Vickers

As the book begins, Cathy has just been dumped by her boyfriend, Victor. Oops, make that ex-boyfriend. With angry doodles, random thoughts, a bruised ego and a questionable bruise on her left arm (is that a mosquito bite... or a needle mark?), Cathy is determined to find out why Victor broke up with her and then disappeared off the face of the earth.


Murder and Mayhem

As Cathy sets off to find Victor and figure things out, she stumbles upon mysterious clues, mythical Chinese ancestors and even a murder. From breaking and entering to stealing top-secret information, Cathy gets herself into one dangerous situation after another until she finds herself fighting for her life.


The Bottom Line

Cathy's Book made it onto the New York Times Best Seller list, so it's an absolute must-read! But even if it hadn't, it's still a great book that you should check out cuz you never know where Cathy's curious and adventurous streak will take her and her readers to. Aside from all of Cathy's cool illustrations, this interactive novel is filled with notes, letters, photos, birth and death certificates and references to real places that you can go visit. You can even call the phone number that's listed on the front of the book, (650) 266-8283, to leave a message for Cathy!

    My name is Kerry. It is a name used for multiple genders. Depending on where you look, it can mean Ciar's Heir/Children of the Ciar or Princess/(Prince?) of Darkness.
