"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" Midwest Children s Book Review What Sammy should h...ave done was put the binoculars down and call 911. What she does instead is tighten up the focus on her right eye to get a better look. There s something very familiar about this thief. But when Sammy eventually spills her story to Officer Borsch, he doesn t believe her. He treats her like some snot-nosed little kid. Well, Sammy s not going to stand for that. She s a snot-nosed seventh grader now, and she knows what she saw. And somehow she s going to prove it. The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it s the drama in Sammy s personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father. Thirteen-year-old Sammy s penchant for speaking her mind gets her in trouble when she involves herself in the investigation of a robbery at the "seedy" hotel across the street from the seniors building where she is living with her grandmother.

The international bestseller and debut novel by teenage author and classical musician Stefan Bachmann is part murder mystery, part... gothic fantasy, part clockwork adventure. Best-selling author Rick Riordan said of The Peculiar, "Stefan Bachmann breathes fresh life into ancient magic." Don t get yourself noticed and you won t get yourself hanged. In the faery slums of Bath, Bartholomew and his little sister Hettie live by these words. Bartholomew and Hettie are Peculiars, and neither faeries nor humans want anything to do with them. But when Peculiars start showing up in London murdered and covered with red tattoos, Bartholomew breaks all the rules and gets himself noticed. Full of magic, dazzling inventions, and intriguing characters such as Mr. Jelliby and Lord Lickerish, this story of friendship, bravery, and nonstop action adventure was hailed by best-selling author Christopher Paolini as "swift, strong, and entertaining. Highly recommended." The Peculiar ends with a spectacular cliff-hanger, and the story concludes in The Whatnot.

They know where it s safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner. But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper: I am coming to save your friend s life, and my own. I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter. The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she s too late.
