Stolen Treasure by Anne Schraff
One of the most prized possessions in Isa's house is a picture of her grandmother. It was a gift given to her grandmother by her grandfather and it is so cherished that Isa's mom and aunt fight over it. The painting disappears one day after Isa has had a slumber party. The natural suspect is one of Isa's friends who has been in trouble before but Isa doesn't want to believe she would steal from the family so she sets out to prove her friend's innocence.
This book from Saddleback Publishers is a low level reader. The story is not deep but it has proven to be popular with my middle schoolers who are struggling readers.
