Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the young detective at the heart of this third installment in the Roxy Hunter series is noticeably more mature here than in her two previous stories. She's still highly opinionated, guilty of disregarding rules (she makes some references to skipping school), and in a few instances does bully adults into doing her bidding -- but overall it's her self-reliance, resourcefulness, and dedication to a cause that will make an impression on her female tween fans.

Sexual Content

Innocent romance blooms between adults, but there's nothing physical.


Some mild suspense and peril; in one scene, two thugs tie up Roxy and her cohort and set explosives to destroy the building with them in it, but fate steps in to save them at the last minute. A man hits his head and is unconscious for a few minutes.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Roxy sometimes breaks her mother's rules (skipping school, for instance) and is guilty of pestering adults until she gets her way. But she's also a self-reliant, motivated, determined young woman who doesn't let anyone stand in the way of doing what she feels is the right thing.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In one restaurant scene, a man holds a bottle of wine.
