    1. This book is very good. I couldn't put it down. It just drags you in. It is also a fast read but is very very good!!!! READ IT. It is also for everybody.


    2. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineJess is staying in a hotel with her extremely dysfunctional family for her sister Whee's wedding. Her parents are divorced and at odds, her sister Teddy shoplifts so much that she's had to live in a home for troubled girls, and her brother Danny is a disorganized stay at home father to Ruby. When the babysitter for the rehearsal dinner falls through, Ruby is commanded to babysit. She's not happy about it, but she doesn't have a choice. While watching Ruby, [...]


    3. this book started off a little slow and sorta shifted away from the subject at time but fo the most part pritty good. In the begenning the main character wasgetting ready to go to her sisster wee's reahersal dinner and her older brother had a baby sitter planed but she canceled and jess was forsed to baby sit in her place. and the family headed off to the dinner and jess watched them go and saw a man standing down the hall loking back at her and hse thought he was going twards her so she closed [...]


    4. My Thoughts – Jess is the youngest of the O’fines family. She is the save-the marriage-baby. She is the most compliant. She does what she’s asked and told, she doesn’t argue and just accepts everything at face value. She is extremely close to her her sister Teddy. Teddy is non-compliant when it comes to rules and laws. She has a compulsion to steal things, no matter the consequence. She is the complete and utter opposite of teddy and that helps to bring the two sisters closer then ever [...]


    5. School Library Journal( April 01, 2015; 9780545417839 ) Gr 4-6-Jess O'Fines is not the type of girl to cause any trouble. In fact, she's practically an expert on not making problems. The whole family, including both her divorced parents, have traveled to California to attend her sister Whee's wedding. Jess is looking forward to wearing her violet dress and spending the evening as her father's date. Her plans are crushed when her older brother neglects to get a babysitter for his daughter, Ruby. [...]


    6.                      The search for baby ruby                        It was just a few minutes  after her mom left her to babysit her niece Ruby. The main character in this book is Jess O,fines. She is on the search of her lifetime. Its first person in Jess's mind. The conflict of this book is baby Ruby goes missing and Jess has no idea what to doe mood of this book is probably suspenseful,happy and scared. I think the author's theme i would say is allways [...]


    7. Very disappointed in this book.Writing is choppy and feels like not enough time was spent working through the narratives. I also kept trying to figure out who was saying or texting. Marketed toward the younger, middle grade reader, but I'm not sure appropriate. Single page devoted to the bad guys discussing a cemetary where kids like to have sex. Really didn't do anything for the book but drops the entire book's level of appropriateness. Also, a lot of thoughts on the kids' parts about how they' [...]


    8. When the babysitter cancels, Jess O’Fines is left in their tony Los Angeles hotel room babysitting her infant niece, while everyone else in the wedding party is downstairs attending the rehearsal dinner. To entertain herself, she goes into the bathroom in order to get into her sister’s things, shutting the door and leaving the baby in the other room. She returns to the room to find the baby is gone. Jess and another sister, Teddy, must find the baby without alerting and upsetting the family. [...]


    9. The premise of this mystery is so flawed it's hard to know where to start. Maybe the whole purpose of the story is to illustrate that families, even dysfunctional ones, come together in times of crisis, but there has to be a better way of getting this point across, especially in a book intended for middle grade readers.

    10. This is a light mystery and more family story, I enjoyed it because the lost baby kept me reading to the end. It is also a easy read, vocabulary simple, plot not complicated, but it keeps you guessing as to what happened to the sisters and the lost baby. So at lease I didn't quit the book half way, any books keep me reading to the very last page is kind of success book, so I gave it four star.


    11. The plot was interesting but the characters made unrealistic choices. For example, if a baby gets kidnapped the first thing that should be done is a call to 911. The main character decides to find her herself.


    12. Though the central characters are quite interesting, this is otherwise a pretty feeble mystery. See my full review here. Reviewed from an ARC.


    13. This was pretty good. The story follows Jess's search for her baby niece, Ruby, who gets kidnapped under her watch. It was interesting trying to figure out who kidnapped the baby. I thought the ending was tied up too neatly, but overall it was a pretty good book.


    14. In my review on my blog (reading by the pond) I rant about the coverry poor marketing and misleading. The cover makes Jess look between 8 and 10 when she is actually 12. Makes a difference in the context of the story.


    15. Suspenseful kidnapping in the family getting ready for a wedding. The sister who was always the good one, disappeared to follow leads to the baby who was taken out of her hotel room.
