I really enjoyed this middle grade mystery! Paloma Marquez' isn't excited about having to be in Mexico to be with her mom who's received a 4 week fellowship but the trip quickly turns into a search mission to recover the missing peacock ring belonging to Frida Kahlo and helping her friends free their dad who was framed.
I quickly became enamored with Paloma and her quest to learn about her dad who died when she was 3; all the nuggets of information she gleans from mom are quickly jotted down on note-cards as a way to remember the father she lost.
Angela Cervantes does a wonderful job with this mystery, weaving in the Mexican culture, historical information about Frida Kahlo and including Spanish words and cultural customs in this great story.
