The Mystery of Three Quarters
The Mystery of Three Quarters 
by Sophie Hannah
Sophie Hannah channels Agatha Christie's Poirot to perfection! Poirot returns to his office to find an angry woman waiting to berate him outside his front door, telling him she received a letter saying he accused her of murder. And she wasn't the only one who received one of these letters. Who sent these letters, and why? This mystery kept me up until the wee hours, determined to find out who-dunnit!

Other People_s Houses
Other People's Houses 
by Abbi Waxman

Other People's Houses by Abbi Waxman is a super fun read. You will immediately fall in love with main character, Frances (overextended mom who runs the neighborhood carpool) and enjoy reading the drama-packed goings-on of her block!

Leo recommends:
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein
A brilliant re-imagining of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, told through the eyes of Elizabeth Lavenza, a young girl adopted by the Frankensteins to be a companion to Victor growing up. Right from the start, Elizabeth has her own agenda in this fast-paced, tense novel that once finished, had me turning back to the original Frankenstein for an immediate reread. 
(Ages 12+)
