Staff Pick: The Black Book of Secrets

The Black Book of Secrets
(The Sinister City series Bk #1)
By: F.E. Higgins*

Are you a fan of The Last Apprentice series or Harry Potter? Try picking up The Black Book of Secrets. The Black Book of Secrets is dark, mysterious and a complete page turner. On the very first page we meet the main character, Ludlow Fitch, waking up to find his mother, father and the horrible tooth surgeon, Mr. Gumbroot, trying to strap him down in a dental chair in order to pull out his teeth to sell for money. Ludlow narrowly escapes and runs away to the safe and quiet little town of Pagus Parvus...

... But things are not quite what they seem and the people of Pagus Parvus each have their own dark secrets. This book will keep you hooked until the very last page, a must read for grades 6 & up. Reviewed by: Michelle
