Brixton Brothers 2: The Ghostwriter Secret
Mac Barnett
Illus. Adam Rex

“It’s hard to run right after throwing up,” is the lesson 12 year old detective Steve Brixton learns as he runs from his would-be kidnapper. Just another skill to add to what he’s already learned from “The Bailey Brothers Handbook” in this warm but intense Hardy Boys tribute/send-up. An exciting read, “The Ghostwriter Secret” is as appropriate for parents who remember the Hardy Brothers (and Nancy Drew) as it is for youngsters who have yet to discover them.

For grades 5 and older.
