Book Trends, a review site for young adult and children books, published several new book reviews this past week. We're presenting here a summary of those in the mystery / suspense category.

Lunch Lady and the Summer Camp Shakedown by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. The fourth graphic novel in the Lunch Lady series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: N/A. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who calls the book "Hilarious, epic, and mysterious", adding, "[T]he Lunch Lady is a fun character. She has clever ideas for capturing crooks, and always finds a way to save the day!"

The Gecko and Sticky: The Power Potion by Wendelin Van Draanen. The fourth book in The Gecko and Sticky series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: ~800L (estimated from values assigned to other books in the series). Reviewed by a 7th grade student, who calls the book "Adventurous, witty, and eye-gluing", and goes on to say, "This is a hilarious book! I couldn’t stop laughing when Sticky told Dave that he had to look ‘Gangsta’ and that he needed ‘Bling’ to deliver the package."
