I am spring cleaning...my books...physical and virtual...
I have a plan to stay on top of Amazon Vine books...and read as many NetGalley books as I can until June 20th.
The first official day of summer!!!
Then on the first day of summer I will be free to read whatever I want to read all summer long.
June 21st until the first day of school...I will read the old fashioned way...whenever and whatever I want...
I like my plan...don't you?
And sort of accidentally yesterday I picked up this book...
Sent to me by two lovely friends...
It is beautifully written and delightfully engaging. The story is quite mysteriously mischievous and easy to follow. Middle graders will love these characters. They are all quite interesting. I love Fairday and her baby sister Margo. I love her best buddy Lizzy and new friend Marcus.
And their adventure was spot on.
Fairday's family moves to a new house that is old and unique. It has lots of hidden rooms and one amazing mirror that leads them to an amazing adventure.
Some surprising adventures involve an unusual pair of sparkly high heeled sneakers and a wardrobe that follows directions. Add these to the plight of the unlovely Ruby Begonia (prior resident of Begonia House) and you have good clean scary fun and a great adventure.
Oh...I can't forget a very nasty willow tree and a very mean gypsy and bagpipes...lol...bagpipes!!!
Scary good fun...
I won't tell you any more...this has to be an adventure that awaits you!!!
I also loved the messages to bullies within this book...it was done perfectly...the authors did a beautiful job!!!
This was a really cool book...I am hoping there is more for the DMS.
That would be the Detective Mystery Squad. They are just too good at solving mysteries.
