    Camilla, who goes by the nickname Cammie is a 12 year old who has a peanut allergy and a reputation for stretching the truth and telling little white lies. She also is the proud owner of a very active imagination. While her dad is stationed in Afghanistan, Cammie's pregnant mom decides to move them from North Carolina to Colorado to be closer to her brother John. Cammie's Uncle John is the police chief of Hogan, Cammie gets into trouble almost as soon as she gets to town. She has a habit of not o Camilla, who goes by the nickname Cammie is a 12 year old who has a peanut allergy and a reputation for stretching the truth and telling little white lies. She also is the proud owner of a very active imagination. While her dad is stationed in Afghanistan, Cammie's pregnant mom decides to move them from North Carolina to Colorado to be closer to her brother John. Cammie's Uncle John is the police chief of Hogan, Cammie gets into trouble almost as soon as she gets to town. She has a habit of not obeying the rules her mom has given to her. Dusty becomes Cammies faithful service dog and accompanies her everywhere while sniffing out peanuts which can be life threatening to Cammie. The name of the book come from an incident in a park where Cammie sees a man, whom she refers to as the Digger bury a body in the town park. This man insists it was a skunk. Desperate to make friends and also solve this mystery, Cammie gets into more trouble and her adventures seem to snowball into another problem, clue etc. Cammie finds herself breaking and entering, telling more white lies to the point where her mom is constantly grounding her. She is not taken seriously by her mom or uncle due to the fact of her past untruthfulness and troubles. In the end the mystery is solved but it comes to a conclusion due to the fact of Cammie's disobedience again. She put herself in danger to solve the mystery. The mystery itself was good and Cammie seemed like a little modern day Nancy Drew. I would have liked Cammie to solve the mystery in a way that was within her moms guidelines for her behavior etc. The story did have a good ending and I can see Cammie solving more mysteries for sure. I received this book from a Goodreads First Reads Contest

    Crying wolf can be troublesome when something real happens and no one believes you. That is one challenge facing twelve-year-old Cammie Wilson when she witnesses a potential crime after moving to a new town, in author Mary J. Marcus’s clever novel The Digger. With her father serving his country overseas, Wilson adjusts to life in her new Colorado town with her mother.

Intrigued, she Crying wolf can be troublesome when something real happens and no one believes you. That is one challenge facing twelve-year-old Cammie Wilson when she witnesses a potential crime after moving to a new town, in author Mary J. Marcus’s clever novel The Digger. With her father serving his country overseas, Wilson adjusts to life in her new Colorado town with her mother. One day, Wilson cuts through a developing area of town on her way home when she spots a man digging a large hole. Intrigued, she watches the man work, and then sees something shocking: the man dumping a body into the hole. Convinced that she had witnessed a crime, she tries in vain to share the news with her mother, and then her uncle, the town’s chief of police. But Wilson has a history of telling tall tales, so her efforts are in vain. Unfazed, she searches for the truth about what she saw, while adjusting to the presence of her service dog, Dusty, a Labradoodle trained to protect Wilson from elements that could trigger her peanut allergy. The story moves at a good pace and readers will enjoy the smooth language from author Mary J. Marcus. There are surprises for readers as well. Personally, I didn’t know there were service dogs trained to help kids with peanut allergies. I recommend this book for any young reader with a love for a good mystery.

    Cammie, a vivacious twelve year old, finds a balance of being a kid with the struggles of an adult. This was a very easy read for me, but It was enjoyable. The story itself has many twists and turns and was quite interesting. A great book for a young adult.
