In the Shadow of Spindrift House by Mira Grant

 

Nature abhors a straight line. The natural world is a place of curves and softened edges, of gentle mists and welcoming spirals. Nature remembers deviation; nature does not forgive.

For Harlowe Upton-Jones, life has never been a straight line. Shipped off to live with her paternal grandparents after a mysterious cult killed her mother and father, she has grown up chasing the question behind the curve, becoming part of a tight-knit teen detective agency. But “teen” is a limited time offer, and when her friends start looking for adult professions, it’s up to Harlowe to find them one last case so that they can go out in a blaze of glory.

Welcome to Spindrift House.

The stories and legends surrounding the decrepit property are countless and contradictory, but one thing is clear: there are people willing to pay a great deal to determine the legal ownership of the house. When Harlowe and her friends agree to investigate the mystery behind the manor, they do so on the assumption that they’ll be going down in history as the ones who determined who built Spindrift House—and why. The house has secrets. They have the skills. They have a plan. They have everything they need to solve the mystery.

Everything they need except for time. Because Spindrift House keeps its secrets for a reason, and it has no intention of letting them go.

Nature abhors a straight line.

Here’s where the story bends.

Pan’s Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun by Guillermo del ToroCornelia Funke

 

This book is not for the faint of heart or weak in spirit. It’s not for skeptics who don’t believe in fairy tales or the powerful forces of good. It’s only for brave and intrepid souls like you, who will stare down evil in all its forms.

Inspired by the critically acclaimed film written and directed by Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro, and reimagined by  New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke, this haunting tale takes readers to a darkly magical and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters  including trickster forms, murderous men, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.

Perfect for fans of the movie and readers who are new to del Toro’s visionary work alike, this atmospheric and absorbing novel is a portal to another universe, where there is no wall between the real and imagined. A daring, unforgettable collaboration between two brilliant storytellers.

Last Chance by Gregg Hurwitz

 

It ended in sacrifice.

I suppose we always knew it would. That we couldn’t possibly make it through unscathed. But I never dreamed it would turn out the way it did. The way the world went upside down and our lives with it. Now that it’s over, I hope you take something away from what happened to us. Two brothers and a girl from Creek’s Cause—who would’ve ever thought we’d make a difference?

The world changed. We changed it back.

The Charmed Children of Rookskille Castle by Janet Fox

Twelve-year-old Katherine Bateson believes in a logical explanation for everything. But even she can’t make sense of the strange going-on at Rookskill Castle, the drafty old Scottish castle-turned-school where she and her siblings have been sent to escape the London Blitz.

Kat believes Lady Eleanor, who rules the castle, is harboring a Nazi spy. But when her classmates begin to vanish, one by one, Kat must face the truth about what the castle actually harbors- and what Lady Eleanor is- before it’s too late.
