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 Case of the Mysterious Countdown by Fred Rexroad. The third mystery in the Whiz Tanner series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: N/A. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "[T]his mystery has the most enigmatic and remarkable clues that I have ever read which make this book exceedingly fascinating and out of the ordinary. It is nice to know that writers like Fred Rexroad can make two kid detectives as intelligent as Sherlock Holmes." (Read the entire review.)

Star of Stone by P. D. Baccalario. The second mystery adventure in the Century Quartet series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: N/A. Reviewed by a 7th grade student, who writes, "I enjoyed the creative idea of putting in special middle pages in the book. This allowed the reader to go along with the book as more and more clues were discovered and truly organized everything perfectly." (Read the entire review.)
