Read full description of the books Sammy Keyes and the Curse of Moustache Mary:Hmm. #5 in this series and it has HEAVY issues in it. If your child isn't in 7th or 8th grade I would skip this book. Sammy finds herself in over her head. All the confusing emotions involving boys and to top it off, some boys who are involved with drugs. But some are not.
So while the story about Mary and her moustache is right out of the wild west and the feuding families are still at it, the whole story is swirling and twirling around drugs and alcohol. The good news is that Sammy knows that's definitely NOT the path she wants to take and her decisions in the end are good ones. Her girl friends also.
So, on to the next book, but just a warning that if you have a grade schooler reading this series skip this book unless you want to get into discussions with them about parties and weed and meth and underage drinking and why those are all bad choices.
Sammy and her friends end up finding a meth lab.
