Dear Friends
November is here, and we're ready for the season of gratitude. We know the book block will be cooking up lots of creativity and imagination!

There are some cool events this month on Fairday's Blog. Lizzy will be chiming in with her reviews on the best middle grade books out there, and we'll be interviewing some incredible authors as the days drift by. We look forward to hearing from you!

Happy reading! ~ DMS
Fear not the unexpected.
Eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow is less than thrilled that her family is moving thousands of miles from civilization to the quiet country town of Ashpot, CT, where she's absolutely certain she'll die of boredom.

As if leaving Manhattan and her best friend Lizzy, the only other member of her elite Detective Mystery Squad, wasn't bad enough, Fairday is stuck living in the infamous Begonia House, a creepy old Victorian with dark passageways, a gigantic creepy willow tree, and a mysterious past.

Before she can even unpack, strange music coming from behind a padlocked door leads Fairday up a spiral staircase and into a secret room, where an ancient mirror, a brass key, and a strange picture of a red-haired lady are the first in a series of clues that takes Fairday, Lizzy and their new squad member, Marcus, on an amazing adventure and reveals secrets about the Begonia House that they never imagined.

Can the members of the Detective Mystery Squad piece together the puzzle before it's too late? Or will whatever's causing trouble find Fairday and her friends first?

Caroline Stanton from Ridgefield, CT is our Nate Rocks Virtual Sketchbook writing contest winner. Her depiction of Meet Marie Grace by Sarah M. Buckey and Christine Kornacki was brilliant, and Nate had a fabulous time sketching the scene!

Here's Caroline's Description
Everyone could have fallen in love with that place. It smelled of sweets and fruit. You heard laughter of children. To the eyes in it, it was everything. The dance studio for carnival was packed. None of the people were crying. All the costumes and colors. ~ Caroline Stanton

The next contest has begun!
