Reviews of Mystery and Suspense Books for Kids, New This Week on Book Trends (101016)

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.

Darius Bell and the Glitter Pool by Odo Hirsch. A stand-alone novel recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: 770L. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "I loved how Mr. Hirsch used his skills to add plenty of suspense to the plot. Also, since the book is realistic fiction, I felt as if I could just jump into the characters. Speaking of good characters, let me just tell you the ending is even better. It came with a funny twist you wouldn’t have expected."

The Mystery of the Silver Statue by Raymond C. Perkins. A B. T. and Jimmy Adventure, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: N/A. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "The book has a very good plot; the author makes the suspenseful parts seem as if they're real. I think the author filled the genre very well; it has all of the attributes of a really wonderful mystery. When I read the book I was immediately hooked, that is a sign of a truly good book."
