Henry Reed is the son of an American diplomat, and has lived most of his life overseas. When he returns to the United States to spend the summer living in a small town with his uncle and aunt, he is determined to successfully carry out a special school assignment: to investigate American “free enterprise” and record his results. Soon Henry has a business partner, 12 year old Midge. Together they form a research organization, Henry Reed Inc.

“Henry Reed, Inc” features well-balanced humor and amusing action as Henry and Midge become involved in an oil discovery, a truffle search, a disastrous balloon ascension, and numerous other escapades. I would recommend this well-written book as an enjoyable read aimed at the young adult audience.
