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.

Dead Is Just a Rumor by Marlene Perez. The fourth mystery featuring the Giordano Sisters recommended for readers aged 12 and older. Lexile measure: HL580L. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "I liked that the author wrote the book so that people in middle school as well as high school could relate to the book. I also liked was how the author made the main character (Daisy) not afraid to say or do anything. But, it did feel like the author was sort of rushing the story."

The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Mary Downing Hahn. A stand-alone novel of suspense recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: N/A. Reviewed by a 6th grade student, who writes, "I like how the characters are described in this book; you get a lot of details. Plus the ending of the book really puts the whole story together, at which time everything that happens finally makes sense."

October by Gabrielle Lord. The 10th book in the Conspiracy 365 series of thrillers, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: 780L. Reviewed by a 6th grade teacher, who writes, "Everything will be revealed in two short months, and readers can't wait! Lord's writing is compelling from start to finish, as there is never a dull moment. Readers can't bear to put the book down, and when the end is reached, they'll be counting the days for the next month."
