Description
Teenage sleuth Minerva Clark has never liked popular, bratty Chelsea de Guzman. But when Chelsea pleads with Minerva to help her find a lost diamond, in this second book in the series for readers 10 to 14, the prospect of a new mystery is just too irresistible to pass up—especially after Minerva learns that it is a red diamond and potentially worth millions. Before long Minerva is doing what she does best: getting into trouble while getting to the bottom of things, even if that includes digging through a day's worth of trash, tangling with some crooked animal shelter workers, dodging three mischievous corgis, or tracking a carrier pigeon with intestinal problems.

"Summer vacation has arrived, and 13-year-old sleuth Minerva, last seen in Minerva Clark Gets a Clue, has found another mystery to solve. A wealthy classmate, Chelsea, sold what she thought was an inexpensive ring, only to discover that its stone was a rare red diamond. Chelsea's father, a jeweler, is very annoyed, so the girls begin an investigation that involves sifting through the trash at an airport coffee shop, spying on some actors filming a movie, and uncovering the kidnapping of a young woman by a Humane Society employee. Minerva ... makes an appealing heroine—independent, resourceful, and funny, yet still clearly barely a teen. A subplot involving Minerva's three older brothers, who are raising her in the absence their parents, is also well handled."—Booklist
