Chapter One
My name is Lark Ba, and I have butterflies in my
stomach. Not really. That would be awful for the
butterflies. And it wouldn’t be much fun for me
either. Butterflies in my stomach is something my
halmonithat’s Korean forgrandmothersays.
It means I’m really excited or nervus nerevhus
nervous. Right now, I am both.
Yesterday my brother, Connor, and me solved
our very first mystery! Which was amazing,
because Connor is my younger brother. I’m older
by ten whole minutes, which is a lot of minutes,
and I didn’t think he would be such a great
big help.
Our case was the bestest. The librarian, Mrs.
Robinson, had lost the key to the library. We found
it. That made us investigators, which made me
so happy. Especially because investigator rimes
ryms rhymes with alligator, and I love those.
Today was going to be an even better, more
exciting day. Today Connor and I were going to
solve another mystery. I was excited because I
didn’t know what kind of mystery it would be. But
that wasn’t why I had butterflies in my stomach.
I had butterflies in my stomach because Connor
and I had to practice our magic trick for our
family talent night.
Family talent night is about learning to do
something unyoushal unujual unusual or cool.
Dad calls iteveryday magic. Once a month,
Mom and Dad decorate our living room with
colored lights and put on old-folks’ music. Then
we have a contest to see who can perform the
coolest trick. Last month Dad won, because
he fit thirty cheese crackers in his mouth. The
time before, Mom won for making a hula hoop
spin around her waist for a million years!
Okay, maybe not that long, but it was a long
time! Connor and I are determined to win this
family talent night. We are going to practice and
practice and practice until we are the bestest.
At least, we were going to practice as soon
as we figured out what trick to do. “I think I
should saw you in half,” I said. “That would be
a great trick.”
“No way.” Connor shook his head. “You’re
clumsy and klutzy and
