Juvenile and Teen picks!

Lockwood & Co: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud 
Set in a fictionalized England where paranormal visitors roam the countryside and psychically sensitive children are tasked with hunting and trapping ghosts, this fantasy novel is full of scares, screams, and unforgettable characters. A chilly read perfect for a hot day! 

Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage
Plucky orphan Mo LoBeau is out to solve a murder in the small, sleepy, southern town of Tupelo Landing, NC while also trying to solve the mystery of her “upstream mother.” This book is perfect for upper elementary readers looking for a good laugh, great characters, and a mystery to die for. 

           Both of these titles also come in very well done audio versions!
