The good thing is that means a whole new batch of mystery to snuggle up on the couch to read. They are pinned over on Pinterest, on a page appropriately titled, "New Mysteries for Kids and Teens (Winter 2012-2013)."
Here are the ones I'm "dying" to read. (Sorry. Bad mystery pun. I didn't get enough sleep. :-P)
|1950, New Orleans, and the daughter of a prostitute caught between an elite college and clandestine underworld.|
|It takes place in Wisconsin! And there are passenger pigeons! Also a missing sister and a sharpshooter girl.|
|My students can't get enough of Jacqueline Davies Lemonade War series. This one sound great--a little exploration about what personal information should be made public or stay private.|
W.H. Beck is a school librarian by day and a children's writer by night (well, actually, very early morning). Her first novel is Malcolm at Midnight, a funny middle grade mystery starring classroom pets at midnight. You can find her online at http://www.whbeck.com.
