The Ghost In Me by Shaunda K Wenger 
Genre – Middle Grade / YA
Rating – G
4.5 (13 reviews)
Myri Monaco has problems she doesn’t know how to deal with: a crush on her best friend’s boyfriend, a mother who’s dating her science teacher, and a “punishment” for a science project that lands her in auditions for the school play (the last place she wants to be). But most girls don’t have a ghost living at home who is willing to “trade places” whenever she’s needed. Will ghostly possession be an easy solution when problems collide? Or will Myri lose everything to a ghost wanting to fulfill her own desires?

Praise for the book
“Keeps the reader guessing.” — David Corbet”Wenger provides plenty of humor along with suspense.” –author Carole Thayne Warburton
“I definitely recommend it.” L.D. Brown

What We Saw by Ryan Casey
Genre - Mystery / Coming of Age 
Rating - PG15
4.7 (3 Reviews)

If you stumbled upon a shocking mystery as a child, how would you react?

Secrecy. Friendship. Discovery. What We Saw is a nostalgic throwback to childhood days tapping into that innocent craving for mystery we all encounter.

It tells the story of a young boy, Liam O'Donnell, his cousin, Adam, and their experiences at their grandparents' caravan site one summer.

The two have an insatiable childhood hunger for mystery, aided by the friendly, but suspicious old Donald. He lets the two of them gather clues in his company, and shares ghost stories to feed their hunger.

When the disappearance of their dog leads to a terrifying discovery deep in the nearby woods, Liam and Adam are plunged into a very adult world of morals and decisions, and find themselves trapped in the dark clutches of secrecy and suspicion, far transcending mere mystery.

What We Saw is a funny, touching and thrilling British mystery novel that will have you hooked as the plot hurtles towards a shocking conclusion.

The Shadow of the Unicorn by Suzanne de Montigny
Genre - Middle Grade / Fantasy
Rating - G
5.0 (3 Reviews)

A loud, hissing sound filled the air. The unicorns looked up, their eyes filled with horror.

Azaria, a unicorn colt, is intrigued when the young clairvoyant dinosaur, Darius, foresees a terrifying change in the world. When a giant fireball smashes into the earth, the unicorns struggle to survive the hurricanes and starvation that follow. Danger of a more sinister nature threatens when the creatures-that-walk-on-two-legs settle in the valley and their leader, Ishmael, discovers the healing power of the unicorns’ horns. Azaria, now a young stallion, must use his wits to save the herd from complete extinction.
