The Mystery at Marlatt Manor
Review: Anne McGee takes an all too familiar modern day situation and wraps a pre-teen mystery around it in The Mystery at Marlatt Manor.
Thirteen-year-old Mallory Gilmartin is still reeling from her parents' divorce when she moves to rural Cedar Creek. No one seems to understand how heavily all this change weighs upon her. Being thirteen is hard enough, but now a new environment just makes things so much worse. Retreating into her imagination, she sees her life as a complex problem in need of a modern day reality solution.
But then a nearby house offers a mystery to solve, and Mallory is just the girl to do it.
Clues from the contents of secret boxes help save the day and the mysterious manor.
This book will excite young teen readers in hopes for a better life. And as my 12-year-old granddaughter Lily tells me, you never know where your dreams will take you, and how they might just come true.
Special thanks to Lynne Gordon for contributing her review of The Mystery at Marlatt Manor.
