The wig in the window

By Kristen Kittscher
ISBN 9780062110503

This is a delightful trailer with a great mix of colours, silhouettes and dialogue. It is perfectly pitched at middle grade readers. The wig in the window is the first book in a new mystery series.
Sophie Young and Grace Yang play a game spying on their neighbours. But one night they witness something terrifying and bloody at the home of their school counselor Dr. Charlotte Agford. Or did they? What really happened and why is Dr. Agford acting even weirder than usual? All manner of mysterious things are happening and although the girls are determined to find out what is going on, their friendship is beginning to suffer. One of the book’s strengths from the reviews I have read is the humour and authentic quibbling between the girls. I will be watching out for this one.
