This is the second place winning story, predecessor to the JGDS, 50-state, mystery, trivia series. This is the first story Ms. Eldering ever wrote, entering in a contest, and taking a shared second place. The state series represents a mystery state; this story is a mystery destination. In "Train of Clues", you will be introduced to the four characters - Matt Patterson, Guy Lombard, Mary Beth Patterson, and Jolene Ariette - as they gather on Matt's scavenger hunt birthday party on a train.
If you enjoy this story, you are encouraged to start collecting the state series, of which only 6 states are written and 4 being available to order, for your classroom use. Each book in the state series comes with a supplemental study guide to enhance the book.
