Historical fiction, Is...

Historical fiction, Isabel Feeney, is a really cute mystery. Isabel Feeney doesn't have much, but she does have gumption! Too poor to attend school, Isabel sells papers on the corner, hoping to be a reporter one day, like the famous Maude Collier. Then, one day, she hears a gunshot and runs to the alley instead of away from the alley. She finds the nicest customer she has, Miss Giddings, next to a gun and a dead fiancé. Everyone knows that Miss Giddings is the murderer because Chicago is famous for the women who murder. In fact, there is Murderesses' Row in the jail. Isabel decides to solve the murder to keep Miss Giddings from going to prison. Her tenacity is magnetic and her favorite reporter, Maude Collier, even agrees to help along with the murdered man's daughter. Isabel plunges in running from place to place getting clues and accusing many people of murder. She has all the clues, but can she understand them before she is murdered? This novel is nothing like Buzz Kill, which I loved by Beth Fantaskey. Isabel Fenney is written for a younger audience; it's a perfect 6th grade novel. It's fun to read about Isabel and to try and solve the murder. See if you can solve it before Isabel. I did!
