The Crystal Ball: A Rebecca Mystery
Jacqueline Greene, Juliana Kolesova
(American Girl, March 1, 2016)
Rebecca and her neighbor, Mr. Rossi, seem to be having a run of bad luck. When Mr. Rossi sprains his wrist, Rebecca takes over the care and feeding of his carrier pigeons. Then a strange black pigeon delivers an eerie message warning Mr. Rossi of danger, and Rebecca must jump into action to find answers. Where did the pigeon come from, and what sort of danger is lurking? Is Rebecca herself now in danger as well? Only a visit to a fortune teller will reveal the truth! An illustrated Looking Back essay tells about Houdini and fortune tellers in the early 1900's.
