The American Girl doll books were literally my childhood I especially loved this one
This book had me wondering the whole time who was the thief in the theater I thought one person, but then something else in the book told me that it could have been another person In the end, it ended up being someone I would have never though of The plot flowed great, and all the elements to solving the mystery was right in front of you, you just had to put the pieces together I would have never thought that the thief was the thief, and that is one of the main reasons why this book is so good
Finally, after buying this in 2013 at the American Girl store in NYC, I finally have an excuse to read it for school an awesome BYU writing course.I ve loved Kit s world ever since I got the doll when I was six Walking back into it fifteen years later was amazing I love the simplicity of the story, even though it was set in the tumultuous 1930 s I predicted the reveal about a third of the way though the book, but I still enjoyed it Five stars because I m so in love with Kit s world No shame XD

Kit is a take charge sort of girl, who doesn t let setbacks easily overtake her I thought this book was fairly entertaining, and I was puzzled over who was the thief until they revealed it at the very end I would probably recommend for fans of the Kit series Taken from my book reviews blog reviewsatmse 2009

In 1935, the Federal Theatre Project gave jobs to unemployed actors, directors and stagehands across the country It also created some of the most memorable theater of the 1930 s and gave many Americans and opportunity to forget the cares of the day during the Great Depression A great glimpse at live theater, and a touch of Shakespears Macbeth and the superstitions associated with it.
this book is about Kit and her friend Stirling spending their time in a theater that summer A lot of strange things are happening Kit and Stirling are determined to find out who The Thief In The Theater is Who is it Why did they do it This book is suspenseful.
