Book Trends: Reviews of Young Adult and Children Books

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/thriller category.

The Ham Heist by Darrel and Sally Odgers. The second mystery in the Jack Russell: Dog Detective series, recommended for readers aged 7 to 9. Lexile measure: ~480L (estimated from other books in the series). Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "The author uses fun dialogue and humorous jokes that keep the reader chuckling throughout the book. Plus, the mystery is not overly easy to solve. I kept on guessing the identity of the thief and was surprised at the end."

Conspiracy 365: September by Gabrielle Lord. The 9th thriller in the Conspiracy 365 series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: 700L. Reviewed by a 6th grade teacher, who write, "Once again, Gabrielle Lord beats the odds. She has written yet another fantastic addition to one of the most intriguing mystery series to date. ... This is a phenomenal series for early adolescents -- once they start they just won’t be able to stop!"
