About THE TIARA ON THE TERRACE (HarperCollins Children's Books)

Get ready for parades, pageantry, suspense, and a hefty dose of hilarity as seventh grade spies Sophie Young and Grace Yang trade their high tops for high heels to investigate a deadly crime in this clever Miss Congeniality set in middle school!
