Publisher's Summary

What happens when four creative, slightly brilliant, misfit girls team up against a gang of bullies?
That's right. Danger, chaos, and more adventure than any middle school girl should be faced with in a lifetime!
When Jane, Elle, Dakota and Sketti band together to face The Thickheads, they land themselves in the midst of a murder-mystery that none of them is prepared to deal with. And when The Thickheads get involved, lines are drawn and accusations are flung.
But when the two opposing groups join forces, they learn that together, they can mend fences and face the giants.
This laugh-out-loud, coming-of-age mystery is a must-hear for anyone who's ever felt like a misfit, anyone who's ever been bullied, or anyone who's ever felt like they were on the outside looking in.

For the middle schoolers

This is a fun read, that also touches on some tough issues. Middle-schoolers will enjoy the mystery the kids get tangled up in.

Wonderful pre-teen listen

If you could sum up The Ragamuffin Sisters: The Mysterious Mr. Whistler in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, Unique, Endearing

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the imagery this book had. It was reminiscent to books I read as a child like Nancy Drew, The Outsiders, Encyclopedia Brown.

What does Michelle Babb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Michelle Babb is a fantastic narrator who has a wonderful ability to perform various characters with distinguishable voices that fit the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed it when the girls and the boys made up and worked together to solve the murder.

Any additional comments?

I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This story is age appropriate for most all ages, but geared towards elementary school to pre-teen.

Whenever, whenever there are clouds in the sky...

Two groups of lonely, misfit children, four boys, four girls, each banded together against the other and who constantly try to find ways to damage the other team, are caught up in the mystery of who or what killed Mr.Whistler, the popular town bookseller found dead in the ravine?

Mostly told from the viewpoint of the individual four girls, the feelings of the boys are not overlooked.
The detection story itself is a simple mystery but acts as a perfect foil to see inside the minds and emotions of the young people, all of whom, though very different, come to rely upon each other to make life bearable.
Narrator, Michelle Babb, does an excellent job recounting the story with good intonation and pace as well as voicing the individual characters.

At the conclusion is a short 'Who are you most like?' quiz which this reader found unnecessary but might well appeal to younger girls.
A good 'Secret Seven' type story which helps children to understand differences in others and invite an empathy with others, to look beyond the face value attitudes.
Also, though simple, quite enjoyable for adults.

Any additional comments?

This is more for younger kids. This is something that they might actually like especially boys.
The narrator did a great job of voicing the characters.
I would recommend this book to a younger audiance but adults might like it as well, it is just not for me.
