I really enjoyed this book. The author did a great job of capturing the 1950's setting; moreover I learned something about lab testing in the days before animal rights' laws. Of course it's an American Girl mystery so you know nothing too terrible could happen in the end, but it's easy to imagine how differently things could have turned out for Maryellen's dog.
