The Candy Mafia

We rated this book:


In The Candy Mafia, the new mayor in town starts a Prohibition Act to ban candy. The kids in town form gangs and sell candy illegally. Nelle is a kid private detective who has been hired by Eddie to investigate the so-called theft of a teddy bear from his office. Eddie is the head of the biggest candy gang in town.

During her investigation, Nelle experiences a lot of strange events, including her office getting broken into and a shop being burnt down. Nelle finds help from another gang leader in order to find the owner of the candy factory so that she can save it from being torn down.

The story was entertaining, but there were some details that I didn’t follow. I wish the author would have given more information about why candy was banned. Also, I didn’t understand why the shop was burnt down or why Nelle’s office was broken into. I think other kids would like the book because it has some mystery and keeps you wondering what’s going to happen.
