Mystery Twist

I've been having so much fun reading, that I haven't done much reviewing lately.
Down The Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams is a tight mystery featuring a plucky adolescent heroine. The plot is engaging and the characters are well-drawn.
My only complaint was that 13-year-old Ingrid weaves a web of lies so thick I thought at times she was Charlotte. And these aren't little fibs, she tampers with a crime scene, eludes police and takes her grandfather's car for a joyride. All without any consequences! At times she does reflect on all the lies she is telling, but it doesn't change the course of her behavior.
