About the Book
In this new mystery series, Cammie and Tessa are the daughters of the first female president of the United States. Their favorite band, The Song Boys, is scheduled to perform at the White House, but when an important object disappears, the First Kids are on the case.

Most days Cammie is tired of being the daughter of the president and just wants her real life back. She's feeling the stress of having to be on display so often. Plus, her oversized and over enthusiastic dog Hooligan keeps getting into trouble. That's why she's thrilled when her very favorite group, the famous teenage sensation called Song Boys, is scheduled to perform at a literacy event at the White House. But when White House objects disappear, the event is in jeopardy. With some help from her younger sister Tessa and Hooligan, Cammie tackles the mystery—and helps save the concert.
