Vanished by Sheela Chari, 318 pages, read by Leslie, on 12/27/2012


Eleven-year-old Neela must solve the mystery when her beautiful but cursed veena, a classical Indian musical instrument, goes missing.

This was a good book but I thought it was a little long on details, mainly due to the explanation of culture and such.  I don’t know that too many of my students will give it the attention needed to finish.  I enjoyed it and I don’t think that boys will even want to pick it up.
