Ruby Redfort
Look into my eyes
by Lauren Child

Just some good old fun and mystery for younger readers. Ruby is a code-cracking and daring detective. Together with her butler, Hitch, they work for a secret crime-busting organization called Spectrum. Lots of evil villains to meet and fend off.

The second book in the series won’t be published until 2013 but that is plenty of time to grab this one from your library.

Dead time

Rose Smith and Joshua Johnson spent three years living together as a family when their parents became involved with each other. One night the parents go out for tea but never return. Josh is sent to live with an uncle in Newcastle and Rose ends up living with her grandmother in London. They meet up again five years later. Josh is bent on finding their parents.

Murder, mystery and a bit of a thriller all mixed in make this a another to add to my long list of must reads.
