I recently read Janice Spina’s newest book for middle grade readers, the Abby and Holly Series, Book 3: Secrets of the Trunk. I had not read the previous books, but was immediately engaged with this fun mystery involving cousins and BFFs Abby and Holly. This book has ghosts, an old trunk, secrets, and my favorite, a mystery for the girls to solve. The themes of friendship, respect, and caring are cleverly woven into the story. As a former teacher of reading, I heartily recommend this book to your middle grade children or students!
