Mystery   Aug 2, 2008
I read this book after my 13 year old daughter read it. Very entertaining and kept you on the edge until the end. My daughter found the ending a surprise. Good book for young readers and parents too.
great  Mar 26, 2008
My daughter checked out this book from her school library and she enjoyed it so much she has checked it out again a couple of weeks later! She especially likes this Samantha story because she was able to narrow down the clues and solve the mystery!
Worth the price; A good book  Dec 6, 2007
We bought this AG mystery and two others for our daughter. We just finished the book last night and our daughter very much enjoyed it. The book kept her interested, introduced her to some new information (because of the historical context), and was a good, pleasant read. For less than $10, it's hard to wrong.
good enough for school  Jan 9, 2007
I read this book and so did the head of the school library. The library accepted this book as a test book for reading awards and the girls age 8 to 12 enjoyed it..
An intrepid high seas adventure...!  Nov 30, 2006
The year is 1906, and eleven-year-old Samantha Parkington, along with her adopted sister Nellie, are thrilled to have the opportunity to board the R.M.S. Queen Caroline with their grandparents, the Admiral and Grandmary, on a trip to Europe, where they will dock in London and Paris. They are even more excited, however, when they learn that Professor Wharton, a world-famous archeologist, along with his pet monkey, Plato, are among the passengers whom they will be dining with, and that he has brought with him the legendary sapphire known as the Blue Star. The first-class passengers are thrilled to have such a priceless artifact on-board the Queen Caroline with them, and love to hear the Professor tell of its history - from how it was once buried in a graveyard, to how it belonged to merchants and kings in the old days. But when the illustrious sapphire disappears one night at dinner, Samantha is shocked to learn that everyone on deck is being questioned as a suspect. Soon, Mademoiselle Etienne, Samantha and Nellie's traveling French tutor, is accused of the crime, and separated from her students. Nellie knows that Mademoiselle Etienne is innocent of the crime; and, with Samantha's help, plans on discovering who the true culprit is. But as the seas turn rough, Samantha and Nellie discover that solving a mystery isn't as simple as they originally thought, and if they aren't careful, they may be blamed for the crime before the true thief is imprisoned.

Samantha Parkington's adventures have always been exciting to experience. However, with THE STOLEN SAPPHIRE, Sarah Masters Buckey has managed to incorporate a strong sense of suspense into the tale that both brings the characters to life, and leaves the reader trying to put together various clues in an attempt to find the culprit before our two heroines. Samantha, as always, is her usual kind self. However, die-hard fans will be surprised to see her acting slightly distrustful to the people she cares about throughout the story. Nellie, on the other hand, also takes on a slightly different personality, as she begins sneaking about, and hiding things from her beloved sister. However, it is the two girls interactions with the snobby Charlotta Billingsley, along with her dreadfully proper and jewel-loving mother, Mrs. Billingsley, that will leave readers rooting for the two protagonists, as they defend themselves against various rude accusations, and comments made by the gruesome twosome. An intrepid high seas adventure that proves everyone is innocent until proven guilty!
