School Library Journal - 06/01/2017 Gr 5–7—A kid FBI agent takes on a new assignment in the second installment of this series starring Florian Bates. The president's daughter might be involved in some pranks, and Florian and his best friend Margaret go undercover as exchange students at a posh private school to find out what is going on. Florian befriends a quiet violin prodigy from China, who vanishes mysteriously. Is Yin's disappearance related to the POTUS's daughter? And what about the school bully and heiress, Victoria? Ponti drops plenty of clues and red herrings so that readers can sleuth along with the protagonist. Florian has enough flaws to be likable, though several minor characters are broad stereotypes. Most readers will be surprised by the twist ending. VERDICT A fast-paced story for those who can't get enough mystery. An additional purchase for large collections.—Terry Ann Lawler, Burton Barr Library, Phoenix - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
