March Book of the Month

Melody Bird has discovered an old abandoned house in the corner of the graveyard, and a mysterious boy hiding out there… Hal tells her that he’s a spy-in-training, using the house as a base for his undercover surveillance of a known local criminal. Her friends Matthew and Jake don’t believe that a teenager would be entrusted with this mission and turn the tables to spy on him, uncovering secrets and unravelling a mystery as they go.

A great cast of characters facing a range of issues in this page turning mystery from Lisa Thompson. The issues are sensitively handled making it great for empathy collections. Would make a great class reader too.
