I needed a break from all the heavy reading. When that happens, I head to the tried and true section for young readers. The books are fun and take a day of magnificent binging to finish up. Perfect reading break!
Chasing Vermeer and The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett
I reread Chasing Vermeer to reorient myself with the series. The story line is not overly complicated, but the writing is breezy and exciting. I stayed invested in the story the entire time. The young gumshoes even manage to have a mystery that takes longer than the first three chapters to figure out. Brett Helquist also does some amazing illustrations that have there own little interactive game. These were truly a great, fun reading break.
I highly recommend these books for young readers. They will get boys and girls interested in picking up the book after they have put it down and keep reading.
