Leah and her friends are looking forward to a fun-filled
Donna McDine has written a wonderfully suspenseful
book colorfully illustrated by the equally talented
Julie Hammond, that will be fun reading for any child
who loves a bit of mystery. Her descriptive language
is easy enough for a tween to understand yet interesting
for an older child as well. Just in time for summer
reading, the story follows Leah as she
unravels a mystery Nancy Drew herself would
have loved. But, the story is not just a good beach tale.
There's a subtle lesson here too: Doing the right
thing can be scary, but it doesn't change the fact
that right is right.
I love this book. It's well written, timely, edgy enough to
keep a tween on the edge of his/her seat, (me too!) and
fun to read.
Here's a creative little
for A Sandy Grave you will surely enjoy.
