Finished reading Spirit Stealer by Sue Perkins. Middle Grade mystery from MuseItYoung Publishing. Sort ‘o scary.
I interviewed Sue during our September Blog Tour of MuseItYoung Publishing’s Middle Grade and Young Adult Authors. I read Spirit Stealer on Kindle and I really enjoyed it.
You can find my interview with this New Zealand author on this blog on September 8.
With both boy and girl protagonists, this book is appealing to readers of both sexes. Since all of us here are readers, we love libraries, don’t we? Libraries are safe places, right. Well, don’t bet on it. Could characters actually come out of the books? The setting of this book in a library makes it doubly intriguing.
The plot involves two different boys and their encounters with the spirit stealer who lives in the library. The first boy is a street urchin who needs a warm, dry place to sleep. And the other boy is the son of a librarian. It’s interesting to see how the girl character spans the stories of both boys. You’ll want to read the book to see if the stories merge and to find out if the evil green phantom is ever vanquished.
