A younger middle grade book - my 8-year-old and I enjoyed this as a read-aloud (and my 12-year-old spotted it and read it in a sitting). For fans who have grown out of Magic Tree House but enjoy time/space traveling adventures. --Elese
The sequel to The Very, Very Far North - perfect for younger middle grade readers.
Legitimately spooky and filled some of my new favorite characters, this is one of the best middle-grade horror novels I have ever read. Hermon balances her scares with some great moments of humor, so the novel never feels too dark, even as it maintains a constant atmosphere of creepiness. Hide and Seeker is also a wonderfully powerful story of kids coming to terms with loss and anxiety, conquering their fears, and finding strength, support, and resilience in friendship. Perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and Katherine Arden’s Small Spaces. --Zach
