Who Wrote This?
"You have been my friend, that in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my web for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a while, we die.... By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle, Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that!" [Tell Me!]

The Boxcar Children
by Gertrude Chandler Warner
The Boxcar Children is mysterious and cool! There are a lot of books in this series. My favorite is The Chocolate Sundae Mystery.
So, there are 4 children. First is Henry. He's 14, is good and takes on the responsibilities of being the oldest. Then Jessie, she's 12 and is very organized. she likes challenges. Violet is shy, sweet, likes art and photography and is 10. Benny is 6, is a jokester and is always hungry! My favorite is Violet.
It is exciting to see all the clues put together in the end. I really like these books! Give it a try and read them!

When You Reach Me
by Rebecca Stead
I really enjoyed the way time travel was incorporated into this story in a way that almost makes it seem possible. Miranda is a 12 year old living in NYC in the ‘70s. She lives with her mom, a paralegal who is methodically training for The $20,000 Pyramid game show. One day when Miranda and her best friend, Sal, are walking home from school, he gets punched in the nose and stomach by a boy who hangs out with a menacing group of bullies. From that day on, Sal avoids Miranda and refuses to spend time with her. Why? is the question Miranda tries to answer, but the puzzle becomes much bigger and involves a homeless man who sleeps with his head under a mailbox, a privileged classmate, the chronology of time travel, and lots of period details from the 1970s.

The Phantom of Pine Hill
by Carolyn Keene
This book is really mysterious. Nancy Drew suspects many people of being the "phantom" of pine hill. When she finally gets a lead on her mystery she finds out it is someone that she knows and even finds a secret door in the wall where the thieves were getting in. This is a very exciting book!
