A good book, but not one of my favorites!

This one wasn't for me. I loved the information about Vermeer, but I found it really unsatisfying that the kids used coincidences to solve the mystery.

The mystery started out with such promise. It was going to be a fun historical art history romp, like a kid's version of the DaVinci Code. But no. Instead it was a series of wild dreams and leaps and coincidences that led two 12 years old's to hunt for a stolen painting. I want a mystery to follow logic. LOGIC. Coincidences do not equal a valid mystery plot line. Boo.
