Twelve-year-old Melanie is bored with her little sister and with yet another Mardi Gras in her hometown. But when she notices a secret code built into the floats of a Mardi Gras parade, she realizes that life might have some surprises left.

Melanie and her friends set off to break the Mardi Gras code. They chase clues throughout the season’s parades, sneak into forbidden float barns, and even join forces with the intriguing boy who lives down the street.

But when they uncover the final clue, Melanie must decide how much she’s willing to risk to learn the secret of the Mardi Gras code. And she may find that the solution to the riddle isn’t the biggest reward of the chase…

Hott Review:

The Mardi Gras Chase is an amazing middle-grade mystery! The team is likeable and spunky, the kind of girls we’d want out daughters to befriend. The mystery is brisk, thought-provoking, and age appropriate.
I liked that the girls talked about going to church. There weren’t any religious references but the standard was there.
I didn’t like that the word “darn” was used. It’s the only thing that kept me from buying this for my younger niece.
Other than that – this is an absolute must on the summer reading list for your 4th-7th grader girls.
I’ll definitely be looking for more books from Maggie M. Larche!
