Behind the Bookcase by Mark Steensland

Spending the summer at her grandmother's house is the last thing Sarah wants to do—especially now that Grandma Winnie has died—but she has no choice. Her parents have to fix the place up before they can sell it, and Sarah and her brother, Billy, have to help. But the tedious work turns into a thrilling mystery when Sarah discovers an unfinished letter her grandmother wrote: Strange things are happening behind the bookcase. . .

Behind the Bookcase is a thrilling book for both boys and girls, I loved it!!!!  The author has done a really good job of writing a story that is part mystery, part fantasy and is full of suspense, many surprises and lots of fun adventures.  I enjoyed getting to know all of the characters, they are all different.  There are cunning villains and brave heroes and each one plays a unique part with a different purpose in the story.  I highly recommend this book for both boys and girls ages 8-12--it is one of the best books I have read.
Thank you to RandomHouse for this great book!

This book hits shelves October of 2012! 

Happy reading!
