Sleuth or Dare: Partners in Crime by Kim Harrington. This book is a middle school whodunit with two friends who form a detective agency to solve a missing persons case. I liked this book because it kept me guessing and I had a hard time putting it down. I would recommend this book to my friends because of the suspense and storyline.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (by Catherynne M. Valente) is steeped in traditional fairy-tale lore yet is entirely original, with a delightful narrative style. It's painful at times (as any good fairy tale should be) and often humorous, and is a great book for both strong young readers and adults. Not since The Wizard of Oz have I read anything so surprisingly and wonderfully inventive!
