“The Secret Room is at once a superb, young-adult
suspense story, and one of the best, and most realistic,
literary mystery novels I’ve ever read.”
—Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances,
Where the Rivers Flow North, and A Stranger in the Kingdom
Shawna and Thea are working together on a math project for their eighth-grade class. But when the numbers don't add up, and they make a startling discovery—the secret room in the basement of Thea's house, an old Vermont inn.
The code on the walls makes the girls—and everyone in town—wonder why there was a secret room. Was it part of the Underground Railroad, or perhaps something less, well, heroic? Discovering the truth is harder than they would have thought, especially when the truth is not what you want to hear.
This new novel is written for young adults age 10 and up. But readers of every age will enjoy this engrossing tale
