Move Over Agatha...

One of my favorite young adult mystery writers, Marianna Heusler (I hear) has another book coming out this summer called ANNABELLE'S MONSTERS (cool cover).

We invited Marianna a few years back for a book signing and reading from her hit mystery The Night The Penningtons Vanished. I must say the students still talk about her visit. It was one of the first times they were able to meet a real author. Here's a short segment section from one of my favorite of her books,The Night The Penningtons Vanished.

"Still sometimes Isabella felt sorry for herself. Other girls had two parents, and if they did have part time jobs, they got paid for it. Yet without Aunt Tallulah, both she and Anna would probably be in foster care.
A hard rap on the front door interrupted Isabella's thoughts.
Isabella's immediate reaction was fright. From where she was standing, behind the glass counter, all she could see was a huge shadow looming on the front doorstep. She stood frozen, unable to move. She pictured a vicious robber with a black stocking over his face, and a gun pointed straight at her."
