    This book is about a 7th-grader named Minerva who finds impermeable self-confidence and courage after receiving an electric shock. Minerva goes on to solve a complicated murder mystery involving her own friends and family members.

    I liked this book because I could relate to Minerva. She was very critical of herself, very shy, and had difficulty being herself and being honest with other people. I admired how brave and "real" she was after being shocked, and hope to eventually experience a similar change in my own life.

    FIRST IMPRESSION:
    I first borrowed this sometime last year. I wanted to read a mystery, but then I put it down. I think it's because we were shifting houses, and I thought I may lose the library books if I didn't return them. But anyhow, I was about a third into the book and wasn't sure where it was going.

    WRITING STYLE:
    I quite like the writing style. It's efficient, doesn't waste time on descriptions. But then, I can also picture the characters very well. So it's a fairly good writing style, in my opinion.

    PLOT:
    It was a very predictable mystery, but that's probably because I'm the wrong audience. I suppose this would be for "Middle-School" children, and though I'm still considered to be in Middle School, I'm more mature for my age. So it's definitely a good read; I could find myself enjoying it and giving it five stars if I was ten or eight.

    CHARACTERS:
    I loved the Minerva. I think that's all that matters. At first, I didn't like her name, but then it grew on me. And Reggie is adorable. I'm absolutely certain he and Minerva ends up together. Although I really need to read the rest of the series to come to that conclusion. And even though this was a little predictable here and there, I still enjoyed the feeling it gave me. I love mysteries!

    OVERALL:
    A wonderfully written book. A little predictable at times, but definitely a likeable one. Minerva Clark's life is one which I wished I had, so it's the perfect book for the young and the old.

    AMOUNT OF STARS:
    3

    School Library Journal:
    Grade 5-8–Rebus-loving seventh grader Minerva Clark humorously describes the worst day of her life, which includes making a fool of herself in front of peers at an arcade, seeing her favorite cousin getting arrested, and suffering from electric shock. But events soon take a dangerously suspenseful twist when Minerva's personality changes as a result of the jolt of electricity. No longer suffering from self-conscious, self-deprecating adolescent woes, she becomes comfortable with herself and generally more confident. This confidence and ability to look beyond outside appearances enables her to help solve a mystery and deal with the popular girls, peer pressure, trendy clothes, and her kleptomaniacal pet ferret. References to pop culture abound, including allusions to instant messaging, cliques, camera cell phones, and movies like The Matrix. (A reference to choosing the Red Pill or the Blue Pill becomes symbolic of Minerva's adventures.) Despite these and a few words that some parents will frown upon, this tale is interesting and witty enough to recommend to reluctant readers. Interspersed with Minerva's amusing revelations is an entertaining mystery with engaging characters and a positive theme.–Jessi Platt

    I thought this book was cute for ME. For children, though, not as much. I know it will be argued that they come across inappropriate language and/or situations at an earlier and earlier age, but I think when we put it in black and white in their print and media, it’s putting a stamp of approval on it. None of the questionable content was crucial to the plot itself and therefore without it, the book would have been just as good. (In my opinion, better.)

  5. says:

    Good mystery for middle-grade readers.

    Finally finished the fourth of four books I needed to read to compete on my teacher-team of the Battle-of-the-Books at school.

    Enjoyed: Set in Portland, OR, so I recognized many of the places and events. POV of main character as a strange event takes her out of the self-conscious mind of a 7th grader to look at other people and herself in some other way than from the "outside". The "broken" family of BIC (brothers in charge) was enjoyable, as was the humor. Rebus parts a bit hit.

    Not so much: There were holes in the plot that made the story play out a bit like a film missing frames in important spots. It was hard to pick up after I'd put it down.

    Final: Glad I read it. Might use with class to talk about direct and indirect characterization. Could have used another rewrite by the author. Would be fun for middle school aged kids to read.

    Why I did not entirely enjoy this book:

    1. Excessive use of brand names and product placement. EVERY PAGE. I AM SERIOUS. At least it was consistent.
    2. Every single tiny character got a major description. EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER. Again, I AM SERIOUS. If it wasn't the old woman at the counter of the book store who never shows up again, it was the detective who shows up three times for two seconds.
    3. Despite the fact that her brothers got three VERY DIFFERENT descriptions, I had trouble telling them apart.

    Reasons why I could have enjoyed this book:
    1. Jupiter the ferret. And normally I hate ferrets.
    2. It takes place in Portland, where I now live.
    3. Because the author describes every single person, you really don't expect some of the twists.

    Anyway, I did not enjoy it. But! I learned from it. So that's something.

    I, personally LOVE mysteries. I love the way how the authors can make a reader's brain thinking about a good, mysterious book. In Minerva Clark Gets a Clue, the main character, Minerva, experiences many strange happenings. She is a typical teenager...she has her flaws and her likes/dislikes. She has three brothers who are to take turns taking care of her. One day, at one of her brother's art show, she gets electrocuted. With just a single jolt, she is not only unself-conscious, but she is also bolder than anyone she knows. So when a local bookstore clerk is found murdered the day after Minerva's glamorous and spoiled cousin is arrested, she can not let it rest. She goes out of her way to know who the killer was. She even realizes that this is not a safe thing to do, but her brave new attitude isn't going to stop her.

    I wanted to like it more--kind of hard to follow the mystery--and very unsure about a 7th grader investigating an actual murder, having seen the dead body of someone she knew a little and thought was nice. Seemed like there were some intense issues that could have been addressed more deeply: a girl being raised by three older brothers, finding out people she loves are doing some pretty bad things, etc. Started off with the premise of her becoming more assertive, less self-conscious after an electric shock--interesting idea that just kind of happened and then was done with.
