Jonathan Auxier recommends
Thirteens (2020)
(Thirteens, book 1)
Kate Alice Marshall
"Readers beware! This book is a trap: once you start reading,you will not be able to stop. Thirteens is a deliciously creepystay-up-all-night adventure that will shiver throughyou like a cold October wind. I loved every page!"
Bloom (2020)
(Overthrow, book 1)
Kenneth Oppel
"BLOOM is a lightning-paced adventure that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go. This book is ridiculously fun ... and by 'fun' I mean terrifying!"
Small Spaces (2018)
(Small Spaces, book 1)
Katherine Arden
"This book scared the snot out of me. Fast-paced and spine-tinglingly delightful. I defy you to read the first two chapters without staying up the rest of the night to finish. You've been warned!"
Orphan Island (2017)
Laurel Snyder
"ORPHAN ISLAND is a masterpiece both timeless and immediate. Snyder's book, like the island within it, contains all of the joys, wonders, and terrors of childhood. Every young reader needs this book; every grown reader needs it even more."
Murder Most Unladylike (2014)
Murder Is Bad Manners

(Wells and Wong Mystery / Murder Most Unladylike Mystery, book 1)
Robin Stevens
"Robin Stevens's MURDER IS BAD MANNERS is what I wish every mystery could be: a perfectly-plotted puzzle told in a deft and charming voice. The story is a brilliant mixture of classic detective work and contemporary humor—I enjoyed every page!"
