Naji and the Mystery of the Dig was a very good book. I learned a lot about Persian culture, families and food which is really cool. At the end of the story, in the back of the book there are questions that I thought were interesting. My favorite was, would you go in the hole? The story is about a young eight year old girl Naji and her family. One morning she hears digging in her yard and later learns that they need a new septic well for their toilet. The mystery of the dig and her life unfolds throughout the story. There are many strange things that happen that Naji learns valuable lessons from. If you want to know how strange you should read the story. I would recommend Naji and The Mystery of the Dig to anyone who likes a good quick read, wants to learn about life for children in the middle east and enjoys a great ending.
