The Doll Dilemma

Available on Amazon Now!

A headless doll.  A boy with a penchant for breaking toys.  A sister who is convinced her brother is the guilty party. 

     Eleven-year-old Luanna Porcello is a peacemaker at heart.  So it's no surprise that she wants to help when she overhears twin siblings, Jenny and Jimmy Corbett, fighting over who broke Jenny's beloved doll.  Jenny is positive Jimmy is the culprit, but he claims he's innocent.  To uncover the truth, Luanna decides to start a kids' court. 
     With the help of a few friends, Luanna gets to work.  Believing in Jimmy's innocence, she assumes the role of his attorney.  Best friend, Phoebe Chen, becomes her private investigator.  Jake Crandall, Jimmy's fiercely loyal, but not so bright, best friend, is thrilled at the prospect of being the court bailiff, because he'll get to carry a gun.  Jake's thirteen-year-old sister, Heather, is recruited to be the judge.  Although she's way too cool to hang out with "children," the thought of all that power is too much for her to resist.    
     As the drama unfolds in court, unexpected facts are revealed by the testimony of each witness.  With all the evidence stacking up against Jimmy, Luanna begins to wonder...is her client as innocent as she thinks he is?  

Join Luanna and the Kids' Court as they delve into their first case and try to uncover the truth of who really destroyed Jenny's doll!

Available on Amazon Now!

A go-kart accident. A driver claiming innocence. A boy who is convinced his best friend is at fault.

     
     Eleven-year-old Luanna Porcello has just finished her first case with the Kids’ Court. Now she and best friend, Phoebe Chen, are looking forward to some quiet time relaxing by the pool. But with Greg Foster and Declan Mathias engaged in a shouting match next door, the girls’ hope for a quiet afternoon is shattered.
     Greg is furious over the destruction of his prized go-kart. He blames best pal, Declan, and demands that he pay for the damages. But Declan refuses to pay, insisting it was a defect with the go-kart that caused the crash. Worried the boys are about to ruin their friendship, Luanna convinces them to take their case to the Kids’ Court.
     As she delves into the case, however, Luanna discovers that defending Declan won’t be as easy as she thought. After all, he was driving the go-kart at the time of the accident. How can she possibly defend him against that?!
  
Join Luanna and the Kids’ Court as they embark on their second case and try to figure out the truth about who, or what, is to blame for the go-kart accident.
