Book Review: The Strangers (Greystone Secrets, #1)

Shop your local indie bookstore

Are you looking for a Middle-Grade mystery series? I wasn’t really- until I found this one. Now, I’m hooked and reading an advanced copy of the sequel. If you’ve read any of the many novels by this author, you’ll be expecting a twisty, turny plot, and you will not be disappointed here.
Chess, Emma, and Finn Greystone are siblings living a normal life when one day they see a strange news story on TV that tells of three siblings with their exact same names that get kidnapped in Arizona. Very soon after that, their Mom announces that she is going away on business and doesn’t know when she’ll be returning.
Why would these kids have the same names as them? That is only the beginning of the puzzles, riddles, and underlying weirdness that the kids encounter as they try to piece together the truth in their circumstances. This middle-grade novel has more than a little in common with the Stranger Things series, and we were so ready for it. My fourteen-year-old son and I took turns reading it aloud, so don’t be afraid to age this one up into the YA range, although younger kids with a good attention span will enjoy it too.
